Seeks support for community gardens project

Published: Wednesday, March 5, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

Now that spring is just around the corner (wishful thinking), it’s time to think about gardening again. I am trying to put together a community gardens project in the west end by Memorial Park through the Dixon Park District and the city of Dixon.

The opportunity is there if the interest is, too. Its later expansion depends on its success or demise. The only thing needed is people who want to grow their own food.

If you are interested, please call the park district at 815-284-3306 and let them know so we can pursue this in time to make it work its first year.
