Dillon’s Community Garden is located at the corner of Lake Dillon Drive and Tenderfoot Street behind the Summit Stage bus stop. The garden has 24 raised garden beds measuring 4’ x 8’ along with berms of flower clipping gardens.
The Community Garden was funded by a generous donation from a local couple and a number of local businesses. It was built mostly by volunteers, and is self-sustaining through community participation.
All gardeners will be required to satisfy volunteer hours in the garden or at fundraising events supporting the garden.
Applications for returning gardeners will be available APRIL 1, 2020. New gardener applications will open April 15, 2020. Based on your desired plot size (single or double), you will owe a plot fee and deposit. Garden plot fees help pay for the overall maintenance of the community garden, water bills, and other garden expenses (community tools, liability insurance, garden coordination, and general operation).
You will be eligible to receive your plot deposit back at the end of the season if you complete volunteer hours for your plot size (either 10 or 20 hours). These hours can be split between friends, family, and other plot holders. Volunteering is a great way to connect with other gardeners and get involved on behalf of Leslie's Garden at community events.
