Spring will be here before we know it, and for those of you with green thumbs itching to get to work, the Community Garden at Newtown Park is here for you.
The Community Garden is open to any Johns Creek resident interested in planting and maintaining a small garden plot. It features 52 plots and has four raised beds for those who have trouble working at ground level. Each plot is 4 feet by 8 feet.
Johns Creek gardeners can begin signing up for a chance to reserve a plot February 15 through March 15, by submitting their applications to the Johns Creek Garden Association. Individuals or groups can sign up for one or more beds, each measuring four feet by eight feet by 12 inches high.
The garden plot application includes a $10 Johns Creek Garden Association membership fee and $60 application fee, $25 for individuals over the age of 65. All plots, except the small demo plots, are assigned by a random drawing of all applicants. Membership and application fees are refundable for people not selected for a plot.
The Community Garden is managed and operated by the Johns Creek Garden Association.
