Bandon — The Good Earth Community Garden is gearing up for another growing season and applications to rent a garden bed are now available. Good Earth is located at the end of 8th Court SW and is a peaceful place where gardeners young and old grow organic vegetables, fruit and flowers. To see the classes for this year, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Over the years, Good Earth members have proudly harvested an abundance of produce not only for their own families but also for the E.A.T (Everyone at Table) program. It IS possible to grow delicious and healthy food in our windy and coastal climate.

Our garden beds are 4’ wide by 12’ long and are filled with organic and amended soil. We offer free vegetable seeds, organic fertilizer, water for irrigating and gardening tools. Novice and experienced gardeners alike benefit from shared tips, a series of gardening classes and by being part of a community of growers.

The cost to rent a garden bed for the March through November growing season is $30. This fee includes a $10 membership in the South Coast Community Garden Association (our parent association) and $20 for the Good Earth garden fee. We are a non-profit organization.

Applications are now available at 101 Plants, Hennicks Home Center, the Bandon Library, Coastal Harvest, Bandon Ace Hardware and online here and at http://bandoncommunitygardenblog.wordpress.com
Beds are rented on a first-come, first-served basis so apply soon.
