Highlights & Reminders:

  • WEEDS:  Be a conscious of weeds.  Spencer Community Gardeners are required to follow the Spencer City Ordinance that state weeds are not to exceed 8 inches.  
  • HOSESIt is individual Gardener's responsibility to provide their own hose/equipment to water. SCG will provide the hoses that are still in good working condition from previous years. When they "conk out" there are not funds to replace them. A 75 foot hose should reach each garden plot. You are welcome to coil up your hose and store it inside your garden plot. Consider sharing with a neighbor! :)
  • WHERE'S MY PLOT LOCATION?The garden committee works to assign plots as applications are turned in. We do our best to accommodate your request. An email will go out to notify you of your plot location.
  • Please read the Spencer Community Garden Policies for other important information.

Here's to another successful garden season! We will be in touch...
