If you're interested in growing fresh produce or want to learn tips by gardening with others, the Spaulding Road Community Garden has plots for rent.

A Community Garden open house and informational session will be 2-4 p.m. May 4 at the Jackson County Extension office.

You'll have the opportunity to ask questions about the community garden, find out what is new this year, meet the other gardeners and even learn some tips about the deer at bay.

Beginning and experienced gardeners alike are welcome. You can receive tips as well as share tools. 

Gardeners are also invited to workshops held monthly at the garden so you can receive help throughout the growing season. You can rent raised boxes (waist high) for those who garden from a chair or standing. These boxes are wheelchair accessible.

The garden is located across from Lunda Park at Spaulding and Ryebluff roads.

For $15, you can have your own 20x20-foot plot for the year and grow your own fruits, veggies or flowers.

You can find plot rental forms at the Jackson County UW-Extension office, and area businesses, Black River Falls Public Library and Black River Falls Chamber of Commerce.

For more information, contact the UW-Extension office at 715-284-4257 or 227 S. 11th St., Black River Falls.
