Community Garden


The community garden is a gathering place for local gardeners, stressing non-GMO & non-chemical food production. The garden is located on Sheridan St at Willis in Petoskey.

Community Garden Rules

The first garden meeting/clean up will be: TBD 

 Plots assignments will be made at the first meeting


Garden plots are intended for organic vegetable/fruit gardening ONLY.  Pest control or fertilizers must be organically certified ONLY.  Seeds must be non-GMO.  If you not sure about a product or method, please ask. The garden area is always open.  

Safety first! Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing is required and masks must be worn when social distancing is not possible. All current health parameters set by the State of Michigan will be enforced. 


Take a look around each time you visit the garden and take some time to weed common areas, pick up rocks, use only designated disposal sites.


Equipment in the shed is for the use of community gardeners only. 


Family members are welcome!  Children are a delight and are welcome at the garden under the supervision of a parent, grandparent, or other responsible adult.  


Please turn on the water only when you are using it and shut it off when you are done.


Harvest only from your own plot.  This should go without saying, but here we are.  If you take what does not belong to you, you will be expelled from the garden immediately without return of your fees.


Please harvest regularly.  If you have an excess, consider the food pantry as a perfect place for your lovingly grown produce.
