Community Garden Spots Available at no cost in Lancaster and Queen City


Are you interested in gardening but don’t have a good location?  There are plots available behind the high school gym in Lancaster and at city hall in Queen City.  This collaborative project is a partnership between University of Missouri Extension, the towns of Lancaster and Queen City, and the Schuyler County Ministerial Alliance. Most everything will be provided for you – seeds, plants, fertilizer, hoes, mulch, etc. Reserve your spot by April 30th  and let us know what you want to plant.  All you will provide is the labor.  Spots are limited so contact Darla at the Schuyler County MU Extension office at 457-3469 for the Lancaster plots and Traci at city hall for the Queen City plots at 766-2735.  These garden plots will be available starting Saturday, May 4th.  The size of the raised bed plots are 4 X 8. There may be more than one raised bed of this size available per individual, depending on demand.
