The Community Garden plots are sold out for the 2013 season.

Participating gardeners should be aware construction is being done on the creek behind the plots.

Trees have been cut and equipment will be present later in the season.

Do not be alarmed by these changes. New trees will be planted at the conclusion of the project.
