Spring is just around the corner, so Johns Creek gardeners can begin signing up for a chance to land a plot at Johns Creek’s Newtown Park Community Garden.
Johns Creek gardeners can begin signing up for a chance to reserve a plot Feb. 15 through March 15 by submitting their applications to the Johns Creek Garden Association. To be eligible for a spot, one must be a resident of the City of Johns Creek and become a member of the Johns Creek Garden Association. Membership costs $10 annually.
The Community Garden offers 52 plots in which people can grow vegetables and flowers. Community gardens are popular among people with little or no space for gardens. The garden has four raised beds for those who have trouble working at ground level. Each plot is 4 feet by 8 feet.
A garden plot applications fee is $60 and seniors over 65 pay $25. Membership and application fees are refundable for people not selected for a plot. Applications can be downloaded from the Garden Association website
