There are three Community Gardens located within the City of Grand Haven. The first garden was established in 2010 on DeSpelder Street, behind the Salvation Army building; the second garden, established in 2012, is located on Comstock at the Airport entrance; and the third garden was established in 2014 on Orchard Street behind St Paul’s United Church of Christ Church. The planting/growing season runs from Mid-May (last frost) to the first part of October (last frost). Garden plots are awarded annually and a nominal fee (currently $10) is charged each year. Each gardener is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of their section/garden plot. Many gardeners plant vegetables and flowers of all types. Interested participants may refer to the current contact information for each garden. Special thanks to the City Department of Public Works for their endless maintenance support, Dale Kwekel and the Grand Haven Garden House for inspiration and support and City environmental consultants Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr and Huber for underwriting the cost of water service.
