The Manhattan Community Garden started a new and exciting phase in its operations in 2012. Working in conjunction with Riley County, the Garden added a new site at 1435 Collins Lane on Hunter’s Island. Not only did this allow more garden plots, but it also expanded gardening opportunities to all Riley County residents. The site on Riley Lane is restricted to residents of the city of Manhattan.
To apply for a garden plot, you may click the link below for the application. Bring this application to a New Gardener signup or get an application at signup. All new gardeners must attend a signup session. No specific plot can be guaranteed. Plot rental fees are $50 per plot for full fees and $25 for low income fees + a one time plot deposit of $20 for full fees and $10 for low income fees.
