Manhattan Community Garden--Phase II of the Collins Lane Site, Manhattan, Kansas
The Manhattan community Garden sponsors two gardens, the Riley Lane Garden and the Collins Lane Garden. Both gardens are fully rented each year, and maintain waiting lists for individuals seeking garden space. Phase II of the Collins Lane Site opened in 2013. This expansion provides an additional 78 plots (approximately one acre). Currently a total of 174 families are gardening at the Manhattan Community Garden. Grant funds were used to purchase a storage container/shed to hold tools and equipment.
Participants of the 2013 Kansas Community Garden Conference toured the Manhattan Community Garden, Collins Lane Site. The storage container pictured here was purchased with Kansas Community Garden Grant funds. The container is used as an equipment shed for this location.
