The garden features 59 raised, 5-by-10-foot cedar planting beds with mini-sprayer irrigation and is enclosed by an 8-foot-high wire fence. The beds have wide perimeters for comfortable seating while gardening. Registration for available garden beds for the 2015 season will be held on Saturday, May 2nd at 9:30am on a first-come, first-served basis. Annual fee for bed rental is $30($25 for seniors). There is a required work party to prepare the garden for the 2015 season, so bring gloves and tools. Opening Day goes on rain or shine, so dress for the weather and work.
The community garden was built and is owned by West Bend Property Co., the developer of Northwest Crossing, and is being managed by the Oregon State University Extension Service Master Gardener program.
