Mankato plots ready to plant
Community Garden is ready for planting
April 1, 2021
Located near the Jewell County Hospital is Mankato's Community Garden which was started in 2014 with six 20 foot by 10 foot plots. In 2015, the garden was expanded to 12 plots.
The garden is usually popular every year with community members renting 8 to 10 plots. The plots that aren't rented become donation plots by the Mankato Chamber of Commerce. The chamber donates the crops on these plots to the food bank and the senior center.
The Mankato Chamber of Commerce received a grant from the Jewell County Community Foundation to build the garden shed and to purchase two garden tillers.
