The Angele Cupples Community Garden in Concrete now includes 20 raised beds that are available for rent. Water lines and yard hydrants will be installed in March.
Ranging in size from 4×8 feet to 4×12 feet, the beds will be rented beginning April 1 for the following rates:

4×8    $25 per year
4×10    $35 per year
4×12    $45 per year

All renters will be asked to sign an agreement, as well as provide their own gardening tools, fertilizer, and hoses. Renters also will be expected to donate 10 hours per year toward working in parts of the garden other than their bed.

All questions and reservation requests should be directed to Jason Miller at 360.853.8213 or [email protected]; or Marla Reed at [email protected] or 360.391.2589.

The Angele Cupples Community Garden in Concrete took a big step forward from Feb. 17–20, when 20 raised beds were installed. The beds are intended for Concrete citizens to rent on a yearly basis and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning immediately. The garden’s annual rental period begins April 1. Concrete’s Assistant Public Works Director Rich Philips worked in the snow Feb. 17 to dig out the sod where each bed would be placed. Volunteers and more help from Philips and Public Works employee Dale Angell worked to place the beds, level them, and fill them with dirt.
