The Cedaredge community gardens are open for business. Last Saturday, a dozen garden members were busy clearing and tilling plots in preparation for this year's planting. The all-volunteer organization is beginning its 10th year of operation. The gardens provide growing space to the local community within the 81413 zip code and members also donate fresh produce to the Surface Creek food bank.

There are still plots available. Garden participation requires a $25 membership fee which includes water, organic soil amendments, and access to hand tools and other equipment. Anyone interested in becoming a member should contact the gardens' secretary, John Steighner at 970-856-1001, or the organization's president, Larry Claxton at 970-596-1776.

To supplement its activities, the community gardens hold periodic fundraisers. This year the Dawson Springs Band performed for a full house at a benefit concert at the Cedaredge Community Methodist Church. The garden's next big fundraising event will be a summer plant sale which is typically held in June.
