Community Vegetable Garden

At Boone’s Lick Park, land has been designated for use by any resident wanting to grow a vegetable garden. The garden is located just North of Boone’s Lick Road on Rosebrae.


27 15’x15’ sized plots. Plots assigned by Park official determined (1st ) by past participants reusing plot, (2nd) by phone, email, or by walk-in, in the order received. One plot per family. Requests for additional plots given after April 15, if plots are still available.


To ensure continued maintenance of plot, fall cleanup, and return of supplied water key, a $50.00 non-interest bearing refundable deposit is required.


You must sign an agreement that states that you have been notified of the requirements and rules that must be followed to participate in this project.


We will perform the initial till and all plots will be staked for easy identification. In-ground water connections with an access key will be supplied. An area for plant debris will be clearly designated and emptied periodically, and removed at the end of the season by the Parks Department. Also, a trash can will be provided for non degradable items. Please do not put yard waste in trash can. All participants, existing and new, will be contacted by phone or email for a sign-up day at the Community Garden location in mid March. New participants can look over available plots and receive a water key. Then you will be contacted again when plots are ready for use.


You must be a City of St. Charles resident. Bring your seed and seedlings, your planting tools and hoses and have fun!
