Community Garden Rental Plots

Since 2001, Rock County UW-Extension has facilitated a community garden rental program at the Rock County Farm, Janesville.  Over 120 plots are available across the 3.5+ acres.  Initial tilling and water are included in the annual rental fee.

Plot rental process for the 2016 growing season:

  • 2016 Renewal: Renters from the 2015 season will receive renewal forms in January. Renewal forms are due by February 12, 2016.
  • Perennial Plots: Beginning in 2015, year-round plots were made available for a limited number of gardeners. Any remaining open plots will be rented on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Plot Swap: If you are unhappy with your 2015 plot and want a new one for 2016, renew your current plot and swap for a different one during the Plot Swap beginning at 1:00 p.m., February 22, 2016. You may swap your assigned plot(s) for open plot(s) in the garden. This will be on a first-come basis. If you are unhappy with your new selection, your rental fee can be refunded.
  • New Renters: All un-rented plots will become available on a first‐come basis starting at 1:00 p.m., March 7, 2016. Payment is due with completed application. You may call the UW Extension office at 608-757-5696 to get on the waiting list for 2016.

The garden is open early May (weather permitting) through October 31.
Garden plots are approximately 20’x25’.
