The following application is for your membership to the Community Gardens of Hancock County for 2021

I am interested in having a garden plot at the Community Gardens of Hancock County (CGHC). By completing and submitting the form, and if selected, I agree to the following:

  • Abide by the CGHC Guidelines. Click here to print guidelines.
  • Keep my plot and the pathways adjacent to it well- maintained. Plots not maintained will be tilled under.
  • Plant only plants approved by the CGHC. Invasive perennials (mint, horseradish, etc.)are not allowed.
  • Notify the garden coordinator immediately if I cannot maintain my plot for any reason during the growing season.
  • Begin gardening in my CGHC plot only after plots have been officially assigned and staked out and opening day announced. (May Date TBD)
  • Clear my CGHC plot of all non-organic materials (fencing, string, wire, stakes, cages, plastic, etc.) and remove all large or woody plant debris to the specified area no later October 24, 2021.
  • I understand that if my CGHC plot is left in a condition unsuitable for plowing I may forfeit the right to garden with the CGHC in the future.
  • Observe any site-specific guidelines established by the garden coordinator/steward.
  • Accept that the CGHC project or its organizers/funders assume no liability for personal injury or property damage in the gardens.
