HPEC – Centerra Community Garden Sign-ups

Mon. Mar 1, 2021 - Mon. Mar 15, 2021

Starting March 1st, annual garden boxes are available to members of High Plains Environmental Center and Centerra community residents. Be sure to email info@suburbitat.org on March 1st, 2021 after 9 am to sign up if you would like to reserve a community garden box. Box assignments and community garden details will be sent out by March 15th. HPEC’s Community Garden provides an opportunity for Centerra Residents & Friends of HPEC to practice horticultural or small-scale agricultural skills. This can be a great way to start a small satellite garden if you are interested in experimenting with new skills or crops, or if your home does not allow you to alter the landscape.

The 2021 Community Garden Program begins on May 1st, and includes:

  • Workshops on pest management, crop propagation, and sustainable garden practices (composting, for example)
  • Community Garden Potlucks/Produce Swap 1x per month to share our skills, experiences, and harvest!
  • Free access to HPEC’s organics/food waste disposal, worm castings/compost give-away program, & free Red Wiggler Worms to start your own worm compost!

Things to note:

  • Garden Boxes are 2ft. x 3ft. x 2ft. (tall), and come with soil already in the box.
  • Soil amendments are the responsibility of the plot holder.
  • One plot per household (to start).
