The City of Hopkins provides a community garden site area in Valley Park in the Westbrooke/Nine Mile Creek area where residents can lease a 20-foot by 20-foot garden plot. View the Valley Park Page.
Registration for community garden plots begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 6, for City of Hopkins residents and is on a first come, first served basis (limit two plots per household).
