County garden plots available to rent

Posted:

Eau Claire County (Press Release) - Eau Claire County is again offering garden plots for rent at the Community Garden Site located on Jeffers Road, just off the North Crossing. This is the same location as in previous years. Garden plots measure 20'x45' and will cost $35 per plot. The rental fee includes access to the water faucet. Plots are rented on a first-come basis. New this year, we are opening some plots for those that want to garden as soon as the ground thaws. These early plots will not be tilled due to early planting.

To rent a plot, stop by the Extension Office to pick up the registration form or call Extension Office at 715-839-4712 for further information. Requests for garden plots will not be taken over the phone. The Extension Office is located at 227 1st Street W, Altoona and is open Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We hope to have the gardens ready for planting mid-May. Don't wait too long the gardening season is just around the corner!
