Do you have problems growing vegetables in your garden at home? Do you have mice, rats or deer causing havoc – or maybe just the family dog?
The COQUILLE HARVEST MOON GARDEN is a place for gardeners who may not have the room – or the sun – to grow a variety of organic produce for themselves or for their families.
COQUILLE HARVEST MOON GARDEN is looking forward to a wonderful gardening season. Last year, with the warm, early spring turning into a sunny summer, we harvested an enormous amount of produce. We are still planning our demonstration beds – the vegetables we grow are helping the local food banks with fresh, organic produce.
Applications for a gardening bed will be available on February 1st at the Coquille Library, in the box on the garden gate and at the link below. The beds go quickly so first-come-first-served.
You can download or print the applications by clicking on the Application link. Become a member of the CHMG (Coquille Harvest Moon Community Garden) and SCCGA (South Coast Community Garden Association).
The Garden’s annual fundraiser, The Vegetable and Plant Sale, will be Saturday, May 23rd from 9:00am to 3:00pm! Local gardeners can purchase our locally-grown veggies at really low prices. The organic veggies are grown by Master Gardeners.
Growing vegetables at the garden begins in early Spring. Applications are available starting February 1st and gardening begins on March 15th – when the weather is perfect for young tender plants. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so early registration is encouraged. Applications for a garden bed are accepted until June 1st – but only if there are beds available. Join us and harvest delicious and organic produce in a congenial community of knowledgeable gardeners.
The garden is located at 180 N. Baxter between First and Second Sts. The garden is flanked on either side by the Methodist Church and the Auto Repair Shop – just down the way from the Safeway Market. Drop by and visit!
Read the “How to Apply” to learn how to apply. Our applications are also available in Coquille at the garden, at the Sentinel newspaper and at the Coquille Library.
Member gardeners get free vegetable seeds, fertilizer and the use of our communal tools. Make sure to check out the garden calendar to see what to do each month during the growing season.
Tell garden seed companies to think about the backyard and raised bed gardener! We need a special section for vegetables that take up less room!
