HEALTHY YANKTON COMMUNITY GARDENS RESERVING PLOTS
March 2 @ 5:30 pm - March 5 @ 5:30 pm
Community Gardeners will have their chance to rent garden plots on Monday, March 13, 2023, at the Physician’s Office Pavilion on the campus of the Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, located at 501 Summit in Yankton. This meeting will begin at 5:30pm in the auditorium and is for all new gardeners to learn more about the Community Gardens and for new gardeners to make garden plot reservations.
Gardeners are limited to two plots per household; additional plots may become available after early season garden registration. Garden plots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. They are approximately 12 feet by 18 feet and will be tilled once prior to the gardens opening for the season. The registration fee is $25.00 per plot for the season which includes the use of water. The garden is tentatively scheduled for opening in mid to late April, depending on weather conditions and will close on October 15th.
Healthy Yankton currently operates community gardens at two locations in Yankton. The “West” side gardens are located adjacent to the Dog Park at Marne Creek West Park on West City Limits Rd. The “East” side gardens are located on the Yankton County 4H grounds at 901 Whiting Dr. adjacent to the Kiwanis 4H Ice Center.
Anyone having questions about the Healthy Yankton Community Garden should contact Angie O’Connor at 605-668-8590. The Healthy Yankton group invites everyone to put down roots toward healthier lifestyles with a lot of growth this summer!
