If you have not reserved a plot for yourself , you may do so now. There are 4

community garden sites in Grand County. Each one has raised beds of varying

sizes, regular automatic watering, good soil and fences to keep the critters out. If you

are new to gardening there are plenty of people at each site, including the site 

coordinator, who can give you gardening tips and help you be a successful

gardener. Watch for the announcement of gardening classes in the spring.
