Applications are now available for a raised bed plot in the Warrensburgh Community Garden. The garden is the first element of the Paper Mill Park to be completed this year by the Town Parks & Recreation Department on the Schroon River.
The garden has twenty-six raised beds ready for adoption by individuals, youth groups, civic organizations and businesses who would like to grow their own fresh produce for themselves or others. On site composting is available and water is supplied by the town. Free soil testing and beginners’ workshops are planned on an as needed basis.
Deer fencing has been installed this Spring to protect crops from nuisance wildlife.
To reach the garden, from the intersection of State Routes 9 (Main Street) and 418 (River Street), travel approximately two miles on Rte. 418 toward Thurman (on right near the hydroelectric dam).
A membership application needs to be completed whether you are a returning gardener or applying for the first time. For an application, contact Tom O’Dea, Community Garden Plot Coordinator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (518) 623-9333.
