The Salvation Army, with support from Ephraim McDowell Health, is hosting a community garden at 519 S. Fourth St. for any interested gardeners and gardening groups.
A 3,150-square-foot garden will be divided into 10 plots for those needing a place to garden this summer.
“We’ve had a garden here at The Salvation Army for the three years now,” said Lt. Dan Nelson, co-commander of The Salvation Army in Danville.
“We’ve grown produce and given it away through our programs and services. This year, we’d like to open up our garden for others to have an opportunity to take advantage of growing produce for themselves.”
The Salvation Army will prepare the soil, provide water throughout the gardening season, and offer expert advice from area gardeners.
Gardeners will need to bring their own seeds and tools to work their garden and maintain it.
Cost for the season is $20 per plot. In addition, The Salvation Army asks for a small portion of what is grown to be donated for local distribution.
