Are you interested in becoming a member of the Valentine Community Garden? Open house registration will be through in person open house times at the garden site.

During open house, interested individuals can meet with a Board member, receive the membership contract, go through a short orientation, then pick the box they would like. (Only one box per family can be given during the initial sign-up, if a few boxes are left over they will become available to members.) There is a $15 refundable deposit per box – this is given back after you clean up your box in the fall.

Open house times (weather-permitting), will be Tuesday, March 29 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March 31 from 6:30 p.m. until dark, and Sunday, April 3 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. The Sunday, April 3 session will also involve a spring clean-up. All members and community volunteers are invited. Following clean-up there will be an informational meeting for the Junior Master Gardener program for youth. Registration after these times will be by appointment by contacting Michelle Garwood at 402-389-1655.

No registrations will be taken prior to March 29.

There will be educational opportunities for youth offered through the garden this summer as part of the Junior Master Gardener program.  Even if you don’t have a box, stay tuned for learning and service opportunities.
