Gardening plots are being sold for the spring and summer seasons.

The Timmins Anti-Hunger Coalition is selling off plots in its community garden network. Vice Chair James Parisi says if people learn how to grow their own food, then they won’t have to be dependent on the grocery stores. Parisi says there are plots at the Kidd Operations Garden and the Rotary Community Gardens at Northern College, with some of them being set aside for local food banks.

He says plots will be sold on April 22nd and 24th at the Timmins Library. Renting a plot costs $25 for the first year and $20 every year after that.
