According to Thursday’s issue of the Daily Sitka Sentinel, the city is offering limited amounts of free topsoil for use by community gardens.

A limit of one pick-up truck-sized load per household may be had at the north side of the community garden behind Blatchley Middle School.

Gardeners also are reminded that coffee grounds are still available. They’re located on the north end of the garden.

For more information, call Sitka Community School/RecycleSITKA at 747-8670.
