Green thumbs in Vandalia: City wants you for community garden program

The city of Vandalia is seeking more community participants in the Vandalia Community Garden as part of the seventh season.

Many people see a community garden as a way to get exercise. Some see it as a way to collaborate with fellow members of the community to grow food, flowers and herbs to feed the community.

The garden offers 22 plots of 15-feet-by-20-feet that will be available as a first-come, first-served basis. The gardening season begins in April and continues through October.

TRENDING: Slingshot possibly used on U.S. 35, car windows broken

Anyone interested can pick up a registration packet from the Vandalia Recreation Center at 1111 Stonequarry Road.

The garden will be located at Jeffers Park on Halcyon Drive. Registration begins Friday, March 1, with a $25 fee. The growing season will begin April 1.

For any further information, visit the Vandalia website or contact Micki Weber at (937)415-2353.
