Water: Water is available at a water station with spigots on the western corner of the garden. Water is also available in a large tank on the eastern side of the garden, next to the shed. This tank is generously filled by the Green Bay Metro Fire Department. Gardeners are encouraged to mulch and conserve water whenever possible.

Fencing: This garden is not fenced in. Gardeners are encouraged to put up their own temporary fencing at the beginning of the season, due to pests, including deer. Fencing must be removed at the end of each season.

Planting Restrictions: Most of this garden is plowed twice a year. Because of this, all plants must be annuals, except in designated perennial sections. Contact garden coordinator if interested in growing perennials.

Soil: 2016 Veterans' Garden Soil Report

Compost: The Veterans’ Community Garden has compost bins 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 or consult the coordinator. Please contact your coordinator if interested in helping with regular compost maintenance.

Waste: There is not a garbage can available at the Veterans’ Community Garden. Waste must be carried out.

Other: Please make certain to weed the gravel around your plot, if applicable. This area is your responsibility. Please do not put rocks in grass, as they interfere with mowing.
