Collins Lane Gardens

The Manhattan Community Garden started a new and exciting phase in its operations in 2012. Working in conjunction with Riley County, the Garden has added a new site at 1435 Collins Lane on Hunter’s Island. Not only does this allow more garden plots, but it will also expand gardening opportunities to all Riley County residents. The current site on Riley Lane is restricted to residents of the city of Manhattan. This site will continue in addition to the new Collins Lane Garden location. To apply for a garden plot, please click the link below for the application. 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.
