If you're not already gardening, this is the year to start. Raising
your own garden provides the benefits of health and better-tasting
food. It always tastes better when you grow it yourself.
Community Gardens has space available and experienced gardeners to
help, if needed, to grow your own garden.

begins at the open house.
LCG invites the community to attend an open house on March 17,
from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at the Lincoln Public Library, 725 Pekin
St. This will be a great opportunity to learn about LCG and receive
advice from seasoned gardeners. You will be able to sign up for a
garden plot and secure your space at one of the three gardens for
only $10. Free seeds and plants will be available for those
registered for a garden plot. The library will have gardening books
available to browse and check out. You are invited to come and
socialize with fellow gardeners and share in the joy of gardening.
If you are unable to attend, but are interested in having a
garden plot or have questions, contact Kathy Vinyard at her city
office, 217-732-6318 or

What is a community garden?
A community garden is an area of land maintained by its members
for growing fresh food and flowers. Participants harvest produce
from their own plots, or volunteer to work a community plot with
produce being donated to a local food bank or other organization.
Each gardener chooses the design and plants they want to grow in
their plot. All are welcome and have access to fellow members who
are willing to share tips and teach.
