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.
The plot rental process for the 2015 growing season will be:
2015 RENEWAL: Renters from the 2014 season will be contacted in January and will be given ample time to claim their plot for the 2015 growing season.
PLOT-SWAP! Plot swapping will still be available. 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 2014 plot and want a new one for 2015, we highly suggest renewing your current plot and attempt to get a better one during the swapping period. If still unhappy with the selection, we will gladly refund your rental fee.
- NEW RENTERS. All unrented plots will become available on a first‐come basis. Open rental dates to be announced. Payment is due with completed application. Confirmation of your location will be provided by mail. Garden plots are approximately 20’x25’.
The garden is open early May (weather permitting) through October 31.
