Faculty, staff, and students 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 up to three raised beds, depending on space available and 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. Contact Marnie Record at 6-4993 for more information about the LLCC Community Garden and to inquire about garden space availability.
