Transcript

  • 1. Quann Park is located on the South side of Madison, behind the Alliant Energy Center. Quann Community Garden is adjacent to Quann Park.
  • 2. Quann Garden is home to 140 plots.
  • 3. Quann Garden was developed with the help of Community Action Coalition, a non-profit organization committed to reducing poverty in Dane County.
  • 4. Many gardeners try to utilize their plots year-round, even during the cold, winter months. One gardener has even been able to grow carrots in the middle of January.
  • 5. The garden does occasionally have problems with theft. A living fence was installed around the garden to help keep out vandals.
  • 6. Most of the gardeners are not native English speakers. This sign shows information on how to get a plot in both English and Spanish.
  • 7. Here, two more postings detail end-of-the-season information. Both are solely in Spanish.
  • 8.  
  • 9. A view of the garden from Bram Street.
  • 10.  
  • 11. The Jessica Bullen Orchard and Quiet Garden serves as a memorial to Jessica Bullen. Bullen was struck by a car and killed in 2005. She was one of the original members of the garden.
  • 12. A view of the Jessica Bullen Orchard and Quiet Garden from Koster Street. The orchard will soon have fruit-bearing trees.
  • 13. Quann Dog Park is located behind the garden near the Alliant Energy Center. Although the park is very popular, dogs are not allowed in the garden.
  • 14. Quann Dog Park is off-leash and fenced in. It is one of the largest dog parks in Madison.
  • 15.  
  • 16.  
  • 17. Although it is not very active now, there used to be a garden committee for children. The group was devoted to making the area welcome for kids of all ages.
  • 18. A plot must be regularly used or it will be given away.
  • 19. Although the season officially opens at the end of March or early April, and runs midway through October, people can access their plot at any time.
  • 20. A covered resting area provides cool shade on hot and humid gardening days throughout the summer.
  • 21. Another view of the pavilion, which lies adjacent to the garden along the entrance into Quann Park off of Bram Street.
  • 22. A friendly reminder that outsiders are not welcome to the food produced in the garden. Unfortunately, most of the theft is often internal.
  • 23. Anyone who owns a plot in the garden is required to put in a set number of service hours. If a plot is abandoned, it is usually given to someone on the wait list. About 10 to 12 plots open up each season.
  • 24. For anyone interested in buying a plot for the next season, registration usually takes place in March.
