Crete Community Garden

Crete Community Garden entrance.

10th and Thornwood Ave
(South of the intersection about a half block)

The garden is located in southwest Crete, established in 2012 after land was donated to the City of Crete for the purpose of creating a community garden available to Crete residents.

Amenities available to garden participants include a parking area, water hydrant and hoses, potting tables and benches, tomato/plant cages, compost bins, and a shed stocked with basic gardening tools. (Go to Parks and Recreation Department Main Page)

Individual garden plots typically measure 7 feet by 12 feet and are rented for the season at $25 each. Gardeners may rent additional plots at $20 each. A $20 deposit per gardener is returned to those who abide by garden rules and participate in a fall clean up of their plots.

Gardening applications are made available in March each year and plots are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Applications are available at City Hall - Public Works Office or at the links below.
