Spring is here and it is time to start planning and planting our gardens for the summer. We are fortunate this year to have available to us an area designated as a community garden located at Glenwood’s City Park on First Street near Glen Park Manor.
The area, dubbed “Leah’s Garden,” will be broken into plots which will be available to area residents who would like to grow their own produce but lack a good gardening site, either due to lack of sun, poor soil, or inadequate space. This is a great opportunity for you to try out your green thumb. Plot size will be approximately 10 feet by 15-20 feet. Actual size will be calculated once the tilling is done.
Registration for garden plots opens this week. Two sessions for registration and orientation are scheduled to take place at the Glenwood City Public Library. The first will be Thursday, May 7 at 6:45 pm and the other is Saturday, May 9 at 10:15 am. Julie Hawley, garden coordinator, will conduct the training sessions and estimates it will take 20-30 minutes. Plot rental will be $15.00 per plot and $5 will be refunded at the end of the season provided your space has been properly maintained and cleaned up at the end of the season.
Barb Nelson is spearheading the garden initiative and she welcomes your inquiries. If you have any questions and would like additional information, would like to help with garden plot preparation, or get on the list to reserve your spot in the garden, please contact Barb at email@example.com or by phone at 715-265-4804.
