This past winter we signed up to be a part of the Saline Community Garden. What is a community garden? It is a place where you are assigned a plot for a whole season for a price. You use that plot to grow whatever your heart desires. It is a great way to get to know people in the community as well as get to see what everyone is growing and what techniques they are using. We have learned a lot this season from just walking around the garden. Also it has been stress-free gardening. The plots in Saline are all raised beds with great soil. So I haven’t had many problems with things growing, pests, or weeds. Not all community gardens are going to be like that, this is just my experience this year at our plot.
