If you're interested in growing fresh produce or want to learn tips by gardening with others, the Spaulding Road Community Garden has plots for rent.

A Community Garden open house and informational session will be 2-4 p.m. May 4 at the Jackson County Extension office.

You'll have the opportunity to ask questions about the community garden, find out what is new this year, meet the other gardeners and even learn some tips about the deer at bay.

Beginning and experienced gardeners alike are welcome. You can receive tips as well as share tools. 

Gardeners are also invited to workshops held monthly at the garden so you can receive help throughout the growing season. You can rent raised boxes (waist high) for those who garden from a chair or standing. These boxes are wheelchair accessible.

The garden is located across from Lunda Park at Spaulding and Ryebluff roads.
