Lierman Avenue and Washington Street

Urbana, IL

The Lierman Neighborhood Community Garden is a project of the Lierman Neighborhood Action Committee (LNAC). The garden is located at the corner of Lierman Avenue and Washington Street in Urbana, on an undeveloped lot. It's now owned by the city, which leases it to LNAC for $1 per year. The garden was dedicated on September 8, 2012. ​

Community members may rent raised beds at the garden for between $7 and $20 per year, based on renters' assessment of what they can afford. Large tilled areas are cultivated by community volunteers, who harvest and distribute produce at no charge. Distribution dates and locations are announced in advance.

For information about volunteering in the garden or renting a plot, contact Robin Arbiter at robin6a@yahoo.com.​
