Last year’s Community Garden in Vandalia. Participants are being sought now for the 2018 program. CONTRIBUTED.

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.
