Community Gardens at Prairie Green

It’s almost time to start thinking about the 2024 growing season!


Plant some seeds! Watch them grow!

The Community Gardens at Prairie Green is a cooperative partnership between the Geneva Park District, the City of Geneva and the Forest Preserve District of Kane County. The gardens are located at the intersection of Peck Road and Bricher Road. The space features 131 plots.

Community gardens are a wonderful place to spend time outside, exercise, produce food, and stay connected.

Garden plots are open from dawn until dusk between April and October. Plots are available on a first come/first served basis. Each plot is 20 ft. x 30 ft. Gardeners are responsible for the maintenance of their garden plot. Gardens will be checked periodically for maintenance. If a garden appears to need attention, gardeners will be notified by email and phone.
