The community garden is located at 1340 Linnerud Drive next to the Sun Prairie Public Library. The site is leased to Sun Prairie Community Garden Organization from the City of Sun Prairie. SPCGO subdivides the site into 143 plots that are available for rent to people who reside within the city limits, reside within the city school district, or work within the city limits.
The goal of SPCGO is to provide gardening opportunities for those who desire to rent space where they may grow vegetables for home use only, in an open and welcoming community environment. The annual rental fee includes use of water hoses and hand tools.
Applications for a plot in the community garden are accepted beginning in January.
SPCGO was originally started in 1999 by the Sun Prairie Youth and Families Commission, former city council member Larry Olness and Sun Prairie Garden Club member Karen Bailey.
