Community garden plots to become available

ASHTABULA — My Neighborhood Community Garden plots will become available on a first-come first-served basis up until May 10.

Those wishing to sign up for one of the 10-by-10 garden areas at Clifford Kadon Presidential Park can sign up by calling 211. The plots are open for any area resident who would like to have a garden to grow flowers, vegetables, or flowers and vegetables.

“You do not have to garden experience,” said Tiffany Reid, one of the My Neighborhood group’s organizers. “We will have information for first-time gardeners. The main thing is to get started and have fun.”

My Neighborhood is a community group dedicated to bringing people and resources together to help revitalize and rebuild a stronger neighborhood where people want to live, work, play and prosper.

Residents who would like to have a garden, but do not have the space,  can have a plot at the My Neighborhood Community Garden at Clifford Kadon Presidential Park, located at West 58th Street and Madison Avenue.

Gardeners must keep their plots weeded and are encouraged to donate any surplus crops to the local food pantry or similar organization.

After calling 211 by May 10, gardeners should join the group at the park from 1-3 p.m. May 10 for a community garden preview.

In honor of Mother’s Day, My Neighborhood staff and volunteers will host the first planing. Children can decorate a flower pot to give to mom.

For more information, call Tiffany Reid at 997-5957, ext. 522.
