Community Gardens

The Community Gardens at Prairie Green is a cooperative partnership between the Geneva Park District, the City of Geneva and the Forest Preserve District of Kane County. The Community Gardens feature 124 garden plots and is located on the west side of Geneva at the intersection of Peck Road and Bricher Road. Each garden plot measures 20 ft by 30 ft.

Twelve plots are designated for organic growers. The garden plots will be open from dawn to dusk between April and October. Five raised beds are available for use by gardeners with limited mobility. Proof of mobility issue must be given at time of registration. These beds will be given out on a first come/first served basis. The Geneva Park District will oversee the seasonal operation of the garden. Park District staff will rototill all of the plots after October 31st on an annual basis.

Returning gardeners have first priority to renew their contracts, so each year a limited number of plots are available. If plots are not available, a gardener can be put on the waitlist. The waitlist is handled chronologically. Gardeners will be contacted by phone if a plot becomes available.

Gardeners are responsible for the maintenance of their garden plot. Gardens will be checked periodically for maintenance. If a garden appears to need attention, gardeners will be notified by email and phone.
