About Willie Streeter Community Garden

In Winslow Woods Park on South Highland Avenue, Willie Streeter Community Garden is a place for members of the public to try their hands at gardening in rented plots. The garden includes in-ground plots (available in two sizes) as well as raised beds for rent. Garden tools, other amenities, and educational opportunities are available to gardeners as well.

 

Plots are available for use starting in mid-April.
