Grow closer to your food! Community Gardening offers a variety of gardening opportunities for individuals, families, groups and organizations.

Services provided in the gardens include the initial preparation of the garden area, water sources, maintained paths, composting facilities, fencing, the advice of program staff, and the Garden Beet newsletter.

Communal tools are available for use at scheduled times during the week. Gardeners with disabilities or other limitations will find gardening support, including accessible raised beds and access to adaptive tools. Both Willie Streeter and Butler Park Community Gardens have plenty of conveniently located parking and are accessible by Bloomington Transit bus routes.

Plots are available for use starting in mid-April, weather permitting. Some plots at Willie Streeter, including raised beds, and all plots at Butler Park allow for year-round use. Plots are rented on a season-long basis.
