Community Garden Plots
Geneva residents are able to grow their own fruits, vegetables, and flowers at the Prairie Green Preserve Community Garden.

The Geneva Park District offers 124 20’ x 30’ plots to residents. The Community Garden Plots will be made available through a joint effort by the City of Geneva, the Geneva Park District (GPD), and the Forest Preserve District of Kane County (FPDKC). The Community Garden Plots are located on a 40 acre parcel within Prairie Green owned by the FPDKC.

In 2011, the City of Geneva and the FPDKC entered into an Annexation Agreement and a Use Permit and License Agreement so that the City could provide water service to the Community Garden Plots.

Under the terms of the agreement, the City will install a potable water service line at a cost not to exceed $25,000. In addition, the cost of water usage beyond $300 per year will be paid by the GPD or FPDKC at applicable water usage rates.

The license agreement also gives the GPD the right to use, develop, operate and maintain the community garden plots on the FPDKC site. That same year, the City of Geneva annexed the 40-acre parcel. In addition to the Community Garden Plots, a 30 space parking lot will also be constructed.
