Spring is just around the corner. This means Johns Creek gardeners can begin signing up for a chance to land a plot at Johns Creek’s Newtown Park Community Garden.
Beginning Feb. 15 and up until March 15, interested gardeners can begin signing up for a chance to reserve a plot by submitting 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 be an active member of the Johns Creek Garden Association. Annual memberships cost $10 and membership applications can be found on the Garden Association website
The Community Garden offers 52 plots in which resident gardeners can grow vegetables and flowers. Community gardens are popular among people with little or no space for gardens. Each plot is 4 feet by 8 feet and the garden has four raised beds for those who have trouble working at ground level.
A garden plot application fee is $60 and seniors over 65 pay $25. Membership and application fees are refundable for applicant not selected for a plot.
Applications can be downloaded from the Garden Association website
