Registration is now open for this summer’s community gardens.

The Anti-Hunger Coalition is getting ready to open its garden plots at Northern College and in Timmins. Executive Director Jennifer Vachon says you can sign up to get a small plot where you can learn about gardening and food security.

Vachon says for first time gardeners a plot costs $25 and renewals will cost $20. She says this is a great way to meet people in the community and spend some time outside.

Vachon says all the plots are locked and only paying gardeners have keys to get in. She says you can contact her at the Anti-Hunger Coalition to register for a plot. The deadline to register for a plot is early June. Vachon says if by then not all the pots are taken, people with one plot will be asked if they want another.
