Crete Community Garden

The Crete Community Garden is located south of the intersection of 10th and Thornwood Ave., in southwest Crete. The site was established in 2012 after land was donated to the City of Crete for the purpose of creating a community garden.

The fenced garden includes a new arbor entrance funded and installed by the Crete Rotary Club in the fall of 2017. Amenities available during the growing season include a water hydrant, basic gardening tools, and a compost area.

Crete residents can rent a plot, typically measuring 7 by 12 feet, for $25 each season. An additional $20 deposit is refundable at the end of the growing season to gardeners who abide by garden regulations and contribute to fall cleanup.

Garden applications are now available with instructions on where to submit. Plots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. No plots will be assigned after June 1.

Downloadable garden application: English or Spanish

Applications are also available at Crete Public Library, Public Works Office at City Hall, and Crete Ace Hardware.
