Concrete opens its first community garden

(posted 4.6.11)

The Angele Cupples Community Garden in Concrete now includes 22 raised beds that are available for rent. Installation of water lines and yard hydrants will continue during April.

Ranging in size from 4×8 feet to 4×12 feet, the beds are available for rent at the following rates:

4×8    $25 per year
4×10    $35 per year
4×12    $45 per year

All renters will be asked to sign an agreement, as well as provide their own gardening tools, organic fertilizers and amendments, and hoses. A quantity of compost has been donated for renters’ use by North Cascades Institute; several seed packets from Territorial Seed also have been donated, courtesy of Finney Farm. Renters should contact Jason Miller to make use of either of these items. Renters also will be expected to donate 8 hours per year toward the garden.

All questions and reservation requests should be directed to Jason Miller at 360.853.8213 or goodwords@frontier.com; or Marla Reed at marla.mr@frontier.com or 360.391.2589. Renters also should contact Miller or Reed with questions.
