The Macon County Community Garden Committee is now taking applications for garden space in the 2014 Community Garden. Spaces are 500 square feet each and are limed and tilled. Gardeners must supply their own fertilizer, seeds and plants and agree to abide by garden regulations. There is a charge of $25 per garden spot.
It is requested that a portion of each gardener’s produce be donated to Macon County Care Net. In the past five years, the community garden has provided a substantial amount of fresh vegetables to Care Net for distribution.
For an application or more information, call North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Macon Center, at (828)349-2046.
