Ready to grow

Dear Editor:

The newest community garden in the midvalley is taking shape quickly. One-half acre of very good land has been tilled, the fence around it is being completed, and the water-distribution lines are being installed this week. This garden is on property jointly owned by the town of Basalt and Pitkin County. It lies just west of Basalt High School.

The garden will be ready for cultivation on May 1 and is open to all valley residents. Applications for this growing season for individual garden plots are now being taken by the Mid-Valley Community Garden Collective. For more information, to reserve your plot and to start growing your own vegetables, flowers or both, contact Gayle Shugars at 970-927-4563 or, Gerry Terwilliger at 970-927-4629 or, or Fran Suiter at 970-963-6106 or
