Water: Water is available in two tanks next to the shed. This water is filled by volunteer labor from Schroeder’s Flowers. Please try your best to conserve water, as water is used quickly at this garden.

Fencing: This garden is fenced in, though smaller pests are able to enter. Gardeners are allowed to put temporary fencing around their plots, but most gardeners do not find this necessary. Fencing must stay within gardeners' plots and must be removed at the end of the growing season.

Planting Restrictions: All plants must be annuals.

Soil: 2017 Olde North soil test; 2017 lead test. It is recommended that you add compost to your soil to increase its quality. Free City compost is available at 1470 Hurlbut St and 2530 East Shore Drive. Garden leaders will advise gardeners if compost from the garden’s compost bin is ready to be used.

Compost: The Olde North Community Garden has a compost bin structure next to its shed. Please chop plants into small pieces before adding, and do not add diseased plants. Click here for a guide to acceptable and unacceptable compost items. If you are able, please take a second to use a shovel and turn the compost. This helps with the “cooking” process.

Waste: There is a black garbage bin next to the garden shed.

Other: Gardeners are also responsible for weeding the woodchip/gravel area around the edge of their plots.
