Be a Part of Villa Park's Community Garden

Community Garden flyer

Villa Park's Community Garden will be located at Westmore Park (between Westmore and Biermann avenues). Garden plots will be available to community members of all ages who want to grow vegetables for themselves and their community. Anyone who has a green thumb or wants to learn about gardening is welcome.

Plots will be available for planting in May. The fee to reserve a plot is just $10, and your costs will be defrayed when you attend our launch event where you will have your choice of a variety of free seeds and seedlings to plant in your garden. Those who share pictures of their vegetables grown in these plots will be given an additional thank you gift for your partnership to help make our community more vibrant and healthy.

If you want to reserve a garden for yourself or your organization, signups will be on a first come, first served basis, at the Iowa Community Center or the Villa Park Public Library, so don’t wait! Visit the Grow Healthy Villa Park website at, for more details.
