Community Gardens Available in East Meadow for Nassau Residents


veggiesCornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County will be opening up to residents community garden beds at 832 Merrick Avenue in East Meadow.

The cost for the season is $75.00.  Each bed is 5’ by 20’.

The application to apply for use of a garden bed will be available on line on 4/23/2012 at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau Website at: blogs.cce.cornell.edu/Nassau.

Application and payment are due on 5/4/2012.  Monday 5/7 a lottery will be held to assign the garden beds.

On the dryer side, make sure to water your trees deeply, preferably with a soaker hose.

It is bone dry and a few showers is not enough.  Spring is the time they are growing and need water.
