LIMA – Activate Allen County threw a curve ball at Old Man Winter during Mayor Sharetta Smith’s weekly press conference on Wednesday morning.

The news comes just in time for the thermometer to resemble typical Northwest Ohio winters.

It’s that time of year when many start to dream of sunny skies, warmer weather, and getting their green thumbs dirty.

Community gardeners are no different, and with the year’s Christmas shopping done, it’s time to think about the 2022 harvest.

Activate Allen County and LACNIP sparked the spring fever among gardeners in the area by announcing that the community garden and urban agriculture series will begin at the end of the month.

Individuals can register for any of the 60 plots located either on South Jackson Street or in Spring-Collett Street Gardens. For $ 10, a gardener can buy a plot of his own for the season to grow the vegetables of his choice. Gardening is a safe and rewarding activity that almost anyone can enjoy outdoors.

Perhaps the most exciting thing for novice gardeners is that you don’t have to be an expert to start gardening in either location. What you don’t know a more experienced gardener can teach you as bonds develop and new relationships flourish. Many gardeners befriended by the program, which continues throughout fall and winter.

“The benefits of community gardening are great and it’s a fun activity – even if you’ve never gardened before,” said Kayla Monfort of Activate Allen County. “You get to know your neighbors, you can be outside and you can be.”

The first meeting will be held on Saturday, January 22 starting at 9 a.m. at the LACNIP building at 1440 West Spring Street. You can find more information on Activate Allen County or on the LACNIP Facebook pages.
