Wabash Neighborhood Community Garden Plots Available

By Jennifer Krupp

Never having gardened before, it was a new experience to rent a plot in a community garden. I liked the idea of growing my own food knowing there wasn’t any pesticides on it. Growing things I would eat like cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, and strawberries has proven – well, fruitful.

Community gardens are a great place to garden for experienced and beginner gardeners. It is an excellent way to meet neighbors, share gardening tips, and have fun in the process.

The Wabash Neighborhood Community Garden is located on the corner of Dade and Abston in Ferguson. Plots are currently available. Each plot is 4×8’ and just $15 for the year. There is also a community plot that all the gardeners take care of and anyone in the community can enjoy. Along the fence are raspberry and blackberry bushes also for your pleasure.

As a group, the Wabash gardeners gather once or twice a month to help with general tasks such as weeding the community plot and spreading mulch. Anyone can come and help! You don’t need a plot to jump in.

If you want to rent a plot, volunteer, or have any questions, please contact Shonnette at

So – Who’s ready to be called “gardener”?
