This past fall, Yolo County dedicated the Hannah and Herbert Bauer Community Garden, located adjacent to the Herbert Bauer Health and Alcohol, Drug & Mental Health Building at 137 N. Cottonwood Avenue in Woodland. The county is now accepting applications for garden plot rentals.
The community garden is a quarter-acre plot of land that has multiple garden areas, including one for children, a demonstration garden and a community garden and orchard. Twenty-five plots are available for rent for one year starting on March 1, to Woodland individuals, families or groups who wish to grow produce or flowers. No plot fees are required; just a small refundable deposit and a required garden maintenance/education time commitment.
