Manitowish Waters Community Garden

Landing page 071519

What is a community garden, anyway?

While variations exist, a community garden is typically a tract of land made available for individual, non-commercial organic growing of vegetables, fruits and flowers.

Grow! the new community garden in Manitowish Waters, is designed with 59 raised-bed plots of varying sizes and heights. They will be built in a sunny, irrigated, and fenced area (for protection from deer and rabbits). Each plot will be rented to gardeners at a nominal, annual fee.

If you call Manitowish Waters “home,” be it full or part-time, you will agree our Community Garden is just one more reason why our town represents the “Original Up North Experience.”

Phase 1 gets underway this summer! Our goal is to create a Garden that is “self-supporting” through annual plot fees. As we embark on this ambitious journey, sponsorship and broad community support are essential. Donations to cover building materials and volunteers to make it happen will be our focus.

By collaborating with local businesses and individuals who share a passion for the MW lifestyle and a love of the outdoors, we can bring this Community Garden from Dream to Reality.

There are 3 ways you can contribute to the start-up process of our Garden.

Help Us Build Our Community Garden

Thanks to many generous members of our community, we’re almost halfway towards our Phase 1 goal!

Even though our Garden is open and every raised bed is filled and thriving, we still need donations to complete our Phase I project plan. Please consider joining those who have already given.

We think you will agree, our new GROW! garden is something the entire community can be very proud of.

Sponsorship Program

In return for a donation of materials, services, or money, this program gives local businesses the ability to reach community residents and area visitors by visual acknowledgement.

Volunteers Together

Enables individuals to share their talents and skills in leading or working within any of the various teams being established to help set up and maintain the Garden.

Starting July 26th, we will be building a Tool Shed. If you haven't Volunteered before but would like to participate in this construction project, please sign-up! For the over 40 Volunteers that have helped turn our gardening dreams into a reality, you will be receiving an email informing you of these upcoming Work Events.
