Community Garden Locations: 

Looking for a place to have a garden this season?

  • Contact the Community Garden Coalition (CGC) of Columbia and Boone County, Missouri.  The CGC is a not-for-profit volunteer group that provides support, supplies, and garden plots to community gardeners, seeking especially to help lower-income individuals, the elderly, people with disabilities, children, and others who might not be able to have a garden on their own.
  • City Parks and Recreation Department Community Garden plots are available for rental at Fairview Park, 1001 Fairview Road, with access to plots off of Westport Road. Try out your “green thumb” on one of our 25′ x 50′ non-irrigated garden areas.
