2017 Community Garden

Sunbury’s Community Garden is ready to grow again!

Half of our garden is 4’ by 12’ with 1’ high raised beds surrounded by wood chips along the walkways. The other half will continue to be the traditional garden beds. Both plots are available for $30 with $15 deposit returned in October if you take care of your space. Plots will be assigned immediately, so sign up as soon as you can.

Pick up the form and guidelines at your Community Library. Any questions, please call Georgann Whitney @ 740-965-3901 or email georgann@yourcl.org.
