The City of Willard in partnership with Huron County Public Health Department, is excited to announce the implementation of a community garden for area residents. A grant awarded by the State Health Department to Huron County Creating Healthy Communities will allow us to establish a large community garden on North Main Street.
Area residents will have several size options available to check out a plot of land for gardening their favorite fruits or vegetables during the growing season. Gardner’s may also choose and organic or non-organic plot. In year one of the program, there will be two raised bed gardens available; more could be added in future years depending on popularity.
There is no fee to register for a garden plot, but users must visit their site at least once a week for maintenance. Anyone neglecting to maintain their plot will lose their right to participate in the community garden the following year.
Water and communal tools will be available for growers, or you can bring your own. Throughout the year, several different organizations will offer educational classes on an array of topics from How to Plant, How to Turn Your Crop into a Delicious Healthy Meal, and How to Can Vegetables.
Anyone interested in reserving a spot or learning more about the community garden can call the Maintenance Department and ask for Kim Williams at 419.933.7531
