Those raising gardens on city-owned property in Sheldon: are they subject to the water restrictions for the free water they use?

    Maybe call the City and ask.

    You could text a tip and turn them in, but it wouldn’t do you any good since Sheldon doesn’t currently have a water restriction, just a voluntary water “watch”

      how do you text a tip?

      • Lee Ann says:

        I think even when we do have any water restrictions, one is usually allowed to water gardens anyway, just no outside car washing, etc. or wasting of water. I think the community gardens is a wonderful idea. I wish more places would do this.

        I wasn’t being serious. The people with the community garden are doing nothing wrong. The city has a voluntary water watch, no current restrictions. I have never texted a tip but believe the instructions are around here somewhere.

    The community garden (in its second year) is a wonderful project. The best thing that could happen to it is to expand it both in its current location and other spots in the City. I participate and love the chance to garden, socialize with a new group of people and grow wonderful vegetables and fruits. Thank you to the City for participating and to all those who spearhead the effort.

    • new resident says:

      where are the community gardens?

      • Lee Ann says:

        South of the water tower. Its at the corner intersection of 14th street and South 10th Avenue. on the west side of the street. Just as you are going from the older section of town into the newer section of town.
