New Gardeners have their chance to purchase plots on Monday, March 27, 2017, at the Physicians Office Pavilion Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, located at 501 Summit in Yankton.  This meeting will begin at 5:30 pm and is for all new gardeners to learn more about the Community Garden and for new gardeners to make garden spot reservations.

Gardeners are limited to two plots per household; additional plots may become available after early season garden registration.  Garden plots will be reserved on a first come, first-served basis.  Garden plots are approximately 12 feet by 18 feet.  The registration fee is $20.00 per plot.  The garden is tentatively scheduled for opening in mid to late April, depending on weather conditions. 

The Community Garden is located along Yankton’s West City Limits Road, on the Marne Creek West City Park, which shares a parking lot with the Dog Park.   

Anyone having questions about the Healthy Yankton Community Garden should contact Angie O’Connor at 605-668-8590.  O’Connor and Healthy Yankton invite everyone to put down roots toward healthier lifestyles with a lot of growth this summer!
