Each year, the Monrovia Community Garden reopens the application process for plots. Monrovians and families enrolled in the Monrovia Unified School District can apply to rent a raised bed for the second year of the program which will run from October 2020 to October 2021.
Applications are due by the end of August. There is a fee of $60 annually but scholarships are available. Accepted applicants are responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and appearance of the plots under their responsibility. They must also attend one to two educational classes a year. If not accepted for this year, applicants can be placed on a waitlist.
Experience level does not matter as the program welcomes first time gardeners. The volunteer leadership will help newcomers every step of the way and the program provides necessary materials.
