"This is a good opportunity for people who would otherwise not be able to garden," Miller said.

Many of the participants are military and live in apartments or other situations where either there is no land or no sunlight. The community garden gives them an opportunity to see if they have a green thumb, Miller said. Many of last year’s plot tenders were families who used the garden as a fun experience for the children.

"A lot of last year’s gardeners learned what worked and what didn’t," Miller said.

There are 10- by 10-foot plots available for $20 for the year and 10 by 20-foot plots available for $30. Gardeners are asked to sign a basic agreement to participate, and rules are available online at the city’s website at For more details, call 444-6400.
