Alderson Community Garden spots now available

8

The Alderson Community Food Hub is excited to announce that signups are now open for the new and relocated Alderson Community Garden! The new Alderson Community Garden is located in Meadows Park, across the street from the Alderson Hospitality House, 203 High Street, Alderson.

The garden is open to all who are interested in having access to land where they can grow their own food in a communal atmosphere.

Based on a WVU Extension Service model, the raised garden beds are of various heights and are therefore able to accommodate gardeners who want to kneel, squat, sit, or stand at their bed. There is beautiful new soil and amendment in each bed.

Water and gardening tools will be available for use. Each gardener will be responsible for maintaining their own raised bed on a regular basis.

Each raised bed will cost $10 for the season, while members of the Alderson Community Food Hub will receive a bed for free. Membership costs $20 per year and also provides a free season-long vendor space at the Alderson Community Market.

There are only ten beds available, and we expect them to all be occupied. Signup is first come, first served, so call soon!

To sign up for a bed or with any questions, please call Beth at 304-573-4242. Follow the Alderson Community Food Hub on Facebook at facebook.com/aldersonfood.
