HAGERSTOWN, MD News (1/16/2023) – Shoppers have undoubtedly noticed the price of fresh produce continues to rise. People want to eat healthy, but what can you do if you don’t have a place to grow your own food? Fortunately, Hagerstown offers a solution that provides both space and camaraderie for the modern Urban Gardener!
Located at 513 South Potomac Street, the Community Garden offers a place for gardeners of all skill levels to grow herbs, produce, flowers and more! As the Community Garden gears up for its 9th growing season, residents are looking forward to the upcoming growing season. Applications are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. To apply, learn more about plot sizes and affordable fees, and other helpful info, interested parties can click here! For a physical application or to view a copy of the rules and regulations, people can also visit City Hall or the Parks & Recreation office.
In an effort to make participation accessible and affordable to all city residents, applicants can also apply for a reduced rate plot. Potential gardeners on a budget might also be excited to learn that garden seeds can be purchased using EBT cards, in any shop that accepts EBT payment. Groups can also apply to share a plot together!
Gardeners will have the opportunity to meet new people, learn tips and tricks, and help with tasks like weeding and watering to help make the Community Garden a big success. The weather may be cold now, but spring planting season is on the way! Applications must be submitted by February 13, 2022. Spots may fill up fast, so don’t hesitate to “dig in”and get ready to grow!
