healthy bodies and a healthy community. We provide space, water, hoses
and wheelbarrows. You supply tools, plants, labor, and optional fencing. A
garden supervisor can assist with questions or concerns. Garden plots are
rented in “as is” condition, and participation is at your own risk. For more

2. In addition to the plot rental fee, gardeners pay a $30 deposit. The
deposit is returned at the end of the growing season if the gardener
abides by the Urbana Park District’s published guidelines. Returning
gardeners in good standing earn a discounted deposit.
