Manitowoc Community Garden

A project of Grow It Forward Inc.

Current Garden Status

Most of the garden is marked and can be planted! Plots 381, 382, 384 and 385 are still too wet and cannot open until they dry more. Remember the garden is closed on Sunday mornings till 1:00 PM for church services. We recommend that early planting rows are clearly marked with stakes, flags, etc. so they can be seen so we don't accidentally till over them.

The large (40 acre) south site is for sale and is not available for gardening. The Manitowoc Community Garden and Grow It Forward are grateful to the Manitowoc Company for allowing the use of this site for many years by the community garden.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help with the garden should call, text or email Ron or Amber using the contact info below.

Gardeners with church in background.

The Manitowoc Community Garden is a non-profit collaboration open to everyone in our community. Because of the generosity of Faith Evangelical Free Church we have 6 acres for our garden site. Please consider joining us in this fun and productive community activity!

We are taking registrations for the 2018 season. Everyone is welcome!

The Manitowoc Community Garden offers free garden space to any church or civic group to grow produce for local food pantries.
