Community garden spaces in Bud Miller All Seasons Park have had a dramatic expansion.
On Monday, the municipal government announced the number of plots in the park have more than doubled in number, with 45 new patches added to a previous total amount of 42. The garden plots are located east of the minigolf course within the park, and are available to all City residents, who sign up on a waiting list. The fee for a plot varies from $30-65, depending on the size chosen by the would-be gardener.
“In recent years, we’ve seen a growing demand for community garden space at Bud Miller All Seasons
Park,” said Cindy Rekimowich, General Manager of Parks and Recreation, in a press release issued by the City.
“This spring, we were pleased to add an additional 45 spaces to our existing 42; most of which have been claimed by residents on our waiting list. It is wonderful to see so many individuals and families taking advantage of the opportunity to grow their own fruits and vegetables.”
