In 1994 the Tuolumne Park and Recreation District purchased a parcel of land on Cemetery Lane in order to establish a community garden for the people of Tuolumne. The Garden features 26 raised beds as well as a meeting area, green house, storage shed and compost pile.
The garden bed application period is from January 1st to March 1st. Community Garden Season is March 1st to April 1st. Attached, you will find a Garden Bed Application Packet, the Policy Regarding Raised Garden Beds, and two copies of the Community Garden Rules. The use of the garden bed is from April 1st to March 31st.
For the use of one garden bed, a fee of $30.00 must be submitted, payable to TPRD, along with the Garden Bed Application properly filled out, and a signed copy of the Garden Rules. Mail to: Tuolumne Park and Recreation District, 18603 Pine Street Tuolumne, CA 95379. Refunds will only be made to those who are not awarded a space. You will be notified which bed you are assigned by March 31st. If you would like an opportunity for a second bed, please note that on your application in the appropriate space. Second bed holders will be notified by April 15th. If you have any questions, please call the Tuolumne Park and Recreation office (209) 928-1214. Again, please fill out and return the application and garden rules along with your fee of $30 for one bed. Please keep the second copy of the Garden Rules for your future reference.
Forms are available at the TPRD office at 18603 Pine Street and on line using the above links.
You may also call 928-1214 for more information.
All members are expected to maintain their garden bed. This would include weeding, as well as watering. Members are encouraged to amend the soil to fit the growing needs of their plants. More information will be given you in your copy of the Garden Rules. The Tuolumne Park and Recreation District is grateful to all of those who have made this venture a success and looks forward to supporting the Tuolumne Community Garden for years to come.
