Sitka Community Schools has opened registration for the 2010 Blatchley Community Garden located behind Blatchley Middle School.
Potential gardeners can register for a plot from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday through May 28 at the Sitka Community Schools office at Hames Athletic and Wellness Center. Availability of garden plots is limited, and former gardeners will be assigned their plots from previous years if they register before May 28. Fees for the program are 50 cents per square foot for plots.
Blatchley Community Garden features small plots for families or groups who want to raise vegetables for their personal consumption. This is different than the St. Peter’s Fellowship Farm communal garden, which raises vegetables for the Sitka Local Foods Network to sell at the Sitka Farmers Market.
For more information, please contact Scott McAdams at 966-1405 or lead gardener Dave Neutzel at 738-8732.
