Community Garden

Richland Township Richland Township offers garden plots in our community garden which is located off Station Road. There is currently no rental fee but space is limited. The plots are approximately 10x7 feet. Please park in the area in front of or behind the One-Room Schoolhouse on Station Road. Access to the gardens is currently through a path in the treeline. We may add additional access in the near future.

Plots will be available to work on beginning April 22th. There is currently no rental fee associated with use but space is limited. Please note: there is no water currently at the site, so it is a BYOW facility.

We currently have a water collection barrel that will be available for use but dependent on rain conditions.

Each gardener is responsible for making his/her own accommodations and may use the rain barrel on a first come, first serve basis. The following rules are designed to ensure that you and your fellow gardeners have a pleasant and productive season. Please take a moment to review them.

Reserving a Plot:

  • Plots are reserved on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Garden plots are not rented to commercial growers.
  • Gardeners may not sublet or give away their plots. If you no longer wish to garden, please contact the Township office during normal business hours.
  • Any plots not occupied by July 1st will be reassigned.
  • Please clean up after yourself. Richland Township will not provide trash services.

Plot Maintenance:

  • All gardeners are to maintain their plots in a reasonable manner. Weeds and garden debris can serve as cover and food for undesirable insects, rodents, and other vermin.
  • Gardening is permitted from dawn to dusk.
  • No fertilizer or commercial pesticides are permitted.
  • No shade producing plants over 4' tall are permitted.
  • No corn permitted.
  • Fencing and plant supports are permitted but please refrain from using metal as it may damage the tilling equipment.

  • Tools, supplies, and related gardening equipment left at a garden plot site are left at your own risk and must be left in a tidy manner and within your plot limits.

Your Responsibility to Fellow Gardeners:

  • Please be aware of larger shade producing plants.
  • Be sure to include a valid email for information, communication, and updates.

End of Year Responsibilities:

  • Please note: Abuse of the above rules will result in the denial of future rentals.

Have a fun and productive growing season!
