A Welcome Message from the Executive Chair:

2021 was a fine season at Kenosha Farm Community Garden and I am truly grateful to have been part of it. It has been an honor to serve the organization for the past six years, and I am looking forward to a prosperous and fun 2022!

Programs Update:

During the season we collect surplus produce for the Food Bank and overripe produce for our animal friends each week. This is done by leaving produce at the shed on Wednesday evenings for Thursday morning pick up.

Look for upcoming Kenosha Farm Community Garden events at 9:00 am for The Latest Dirt - a facilitated discussion about gardening topics. Next topic: TBD at the Gardens located at 1245 Lombardi Street, Erie CO - across from Crescent Park.

Facilities Update:

Gardeners did an amazing job clearing out their plots this year, preparing them for winter. Thank you to the Erie Honor Students for assisting us in this effort!

We have a heavy duty tiller available for member use. Remember to make a donation of $20 per use - up to 400 sf - into our perpetual tiller fund. Use the following link to make a donation to the fund, and include PTF in the comments.

Please note: deposits will be refunded or rolled over to next year for any gardeners.

Membership Update:

We have a limited number of raised beds available for the 2022 garden season. Please see the Sign Up page of our website for more information.

Incoming revenues in 2021 included approximately $2,640 in plot fees which covered the projected cost of water (~$800), administrative fees (~85), and liability insurance (~1200). When actual expenses are less than projected, then funds may be allocated for soil amendments for the following year. We are currently seeking assistance with annual fundraising for facility improvements.
