Community Gardens

The Atwood Community Gardens are Madison's most visible community gardens. This beautiful edible landscape stretches along a portion of the bike path that runs from the Waubesa Street to Jackson Street and runs parallel to St. Paul.

Plots are redistributed from the waiting list on a first-come-first-serve basis as plots become available. On average, there is a three-year wait to get a plot.
