Hayes Memorial United Methodist Church 
Community Garden

Hayes Memorial United Methodist Churc at 1441 Fangboner Road in Fremont is sponsoring a Community Garden on the church property. We are offering several garden plots, which are 7' by 12' to people interested in growing a small garden for themselves and their families. The produce from each individual plot is to be used by the gardener. We will also have a Community Garden with its produce to be shared with the community.

We will ask the gardeners to sign a contract concerning their responsibilities. We will provide rain barrels. Gardners will provide their own tools, seeds, and plants.

Call the church office at 419/334-2605 between 10:00am and 4:00pm if you are interested in having a garden plot.
