 The garden is located on the campus of Carmel Middle School at 300 South Guilford, Carmel, IN.  There are 98 individual plots that measure 4' x 15' that are available to Carmel residents and employees of Carmel Clay Schools.  Due to the strong interest in the garden, we are limiting plots to one per mailing address. There will be 9 plots reserved for student or community groups.  The fee to lease a plot is $10 per year.  Plot sharing is encouraged for those not able or interested in maintaining a plot alone.  Plots holders will have the option of continuing on for the next growing season before those on the waiting list are contacted.

As of this time, we do not know how many plots will be available to new gardeners for the 2014 growing season. Please fill out an application to get on our waiting list. Plots available to those on the waiting list will be assigned after November 1st.
