Cornell 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.
