Sagebrush Community Garden

Mission Statement

The Sagebrush Community Garden serves our community by providing an opportunity for Sheridan residents to enjoy the benefits of gardening and communing with their neighbors. The garden aims to cultivate a community of individuals committed to sustainable land use who also have fun while learning how to grow, eat, and prepare delicious healthy food. This is a community-led organization working in conjunction with the City of Sheridan.

Sagebrush Community Garden

In 2010, the City of Sheridan was approached by the Partners in Philanthropy (PIP) to seek support for a new community garden using a vacant piece of City property. An area that was once an orphaned weed patch and eyesore quickly became a productive and attractive garden, benefitting many residents with exercise, social interaction, connection with earth, and healthy food security. 

As we begin our second decade at the Sagebrush Community Garden, residents continue to grow their own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and annual flowers in plots sizeable to their ambition and experience in a securely fenced area. Amenities include a tool shed, tools, green waste recycling, and access to water. In addition, returning gardeners are always happy to share their successes and tips with newcomers. 

Fees and Securing a Plot

Please contact the Parks Division or one of the SCG Committee members to secure a garden plot. Plots are assigned to one person or family only and are non-transferable. Others may garden at your site, but the responsibility for payment of fees, cleanup, and other duties will be the responsibility of the individual or family whose name is assigned to the plot. New gardeners may request specific plots, but please remember that you may not get your first choice. A waiting list will be maintained for applicants for whom no plot was available.

Fees for plots are based on a square footage range and are explained in the chart below.
