Taft Corners offers community garden (5/21/09)

May 21, 2009

A new community garden has opened in Taft Corners this spring, and a few plots are still available to interested gardeners.

The Taft Corners Community Garden is sponsored by Gardener’s Supply Co. and organized by employee Debbie Page. She said the garden would not have been possible without help from Jeff Davis of Taft Corners Associates, who’s allowing the use of the property for the purpose of the garden.

Page said Tuesday there are 10 plots at the garden, with four still available for anyone who is interested. The plots are 10 feet by 24 feet and cost $30 for the season.

A generous gardener has already paid for an extra plot, Page added. There will also be eight raised beds, where vegetables will be grown and donated to area food shelves, including the Williston Community Food Shelf, Page said.

If interested in acquiring a plot, contact Gardener’s Supply Co. at 879-0099.
