Corcoran Community Garden At 3301 24th Ave S And Milly’s Peace Garden at 2017 E 38th St are now accepting applications for the 2018 gardening season. Due to time contrasts we are unable to mail out the application with the paper this year. But you can download the application here - 2018 Garden Application. Or you can come pick one up in person at the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization, located at 3451 Cedar Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
APPLICATION PROCESS: Please complete and sign the Application Form and Gardener Agreement and return both with your payment to the CNO office (3451 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407) by Monday, May 7 at 4:00 p.m. Applications can be mailed or dropped off at the office. Payment is by cash or check (payable to CNO). This is a lottery system and applicants will be notified within one week if they will receive a plot. Applicants not selected will have their application fees returned. Application and Agreement forms must be complete and signed, with payment included.
PLOT SIZE AND COST: Corcoran plots are 4’x12’, 6’x12’, and 10’x12’ in size; Milly’s plots are roughly 72-96 sq feet. Several accessible raised bed plots will be available for disabled gardeners. Cost for plots vary based on size. Raised beds and 4’x12’ are $35, 6’x12’ is $50, and 10’x12’ is $60; $10 of this will be returned at the end of the season after inspection by the Garden Coordinator confirming final clean-up of your plot. If you would like to share a plot with another gardener, please specify this in the application. If you are financially unable to pay $35-$40, contact CNO staff (see below) for help.
LOTTERY PROCESS: Garden plots will be assigned to applicants using a blind lottery administered by CNO. The lottery will give top priority to returning gardeners; they will receive the same plot if they request it. Second priority will be given to residents who live within ¼ mile of their preferred garden who do not have access to gardening space at home. Third priority will be given to other residents who live within ¼ mile of their preferred garden. All other applications will be considered in the final round of the lottery.
