Faculty, staff, students and community members can now register for a raised bed in the LLCC Community Garden. As a garden participant you will manage your own space to grow the fruits or vegetables of your choice all season long. A $20 garden fee allows you to choose one or two raised beds. There are also options for three and four beds available, depending on the amount of space you are willing to manage. Raised beds are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis until filled. First-time gardeners are welcome!
There are many documented benefits of gardening – it is cheaper to grow your own food; you can reduce stress through gardening activities and connecting with the soil; and you can eat a healthier, more delicious diet by incorporating whole foods that you grow yourself.
The LLCC Community Garden is located behind the Workforce Careers Center and Montgomery Hall. We have secured funding this year for new fencing for the garden area. Hopefully this will detour the deer population and other garden pests from produce and flowers.
