Community Garden Program
The Boone County Conservation District provides a small number of garden plots for community members. These plots are approximately 20′ x 35′. There are a total of 28 plots that are assigned on a first-come first-served basis, beginning March 1st.
Garden Requests can be made by calling the BCCD Administration Office at (815) 547-7935, and with assistance of a BCCD staff member, complete an over the phone application request form, or by coming into the Office and completing an application request form (in either case – during regular BCCD office hours). The BCCD will not accept requests left on voicemail or other notifications.
Garden plots will be assigned after May 1st and a water usage fee of $15 will be due prior to May 15th. Planting may begin no sooner than May 15th.
