The City is assigning community garden plots as close to residents as possible because of COVID-19.

The City of Wetaskiwin is expanding its community gardens project this season by digging new plots across the City.

According to the City of Wetaskiwin “garden plots will be assigned as close to your residence as possible to help promote physical distancing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

If residents are interested in renting a plot they can do so for a fee of $50, $30 of which will be refunded at the end of the season if the plot user follows the projects terms of reference.

The City recommends requesting a plot sooner rather than later if you hope to be able to plant at a sooner date as City crews need approximately two weeks for locations to dig the plots.

Additionally all plots are to be kept weed-free and all users must agree to only use organic products for fertilizer and pest control.
