The City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department is now accepting reservations for plots at the Heritage Community Garden, 2100 Hutto Road.
The renovated community garden features 25 in-ground garden beds, 48 raised beds, and eight ADA accessible beds, which will open March 1, 2022, for gardeners to begin planting flowers, vegetables, and fruits.
Plots are on a first-come, first-served basis, and plots will be assigned by City staff. Leases run from March 1 through Dec. 31, 2022, and may be renewed annually. Fees are paid annually and are not prorated.
|20 foot x 20 foot in-ground||$50||$75|
|7 foot by 16 foot raised bed||$40||$50|
|7 foot by 16 foot accessible raised bed||$40||$50|
The garden will be open daily for gardeners from 5 a.m.-10 p.m. The garden area is secured with a chain-link fence.
Other renovations to the community garden include a new restroom facility, concrete sidewalks, a lighted parking lot, and a dumpster with a designated area for green waste that will be recycled offsite. The total project cost was $275,000.
The City is also partnering with the Williamson County Beekeepers Association, and hives will be constructed onsite in a separate area.
A grand opening celebration for the garden is expected to be held in March. More details will be announced when they are available.
