Interested gardeners gathered in Lyndon Saturday for the opening day of the city’s community garden. A variety of vegetables were put in the ground, along with an informational meeting about participating in the garden.

Anyone can be involved in the garden, and this year memberships are being offered to allow members to harvest any vegetables they need. Garden memberships cost $20 and are limited to the first 50 applicants. Members are asked to help at the garden one weekend a month.

In addition to unlimited vegetables during the season, members can also attend educational classes to be scheduled.

For more information, contact Steve Zerr, garden manager, at 785-280-2439, or city hall, at 785-828-3146, to sign up.

    Update from Steve:6/14

    We had another successful work day at the garden. Picked fresh peas, beets, peppers, lettuce, and radishes today. Lots mores stuff down there.

    We will have another big work day 9 to 12 Saturday June 28. Have other volunteers coming to help us so we can build, till, plant and pick.

    See you at the Garden.

    Since Lyndon doesn't have the modern convenience of a grocery store, I suppose a volunteer community garden which serves 50 lyndonites is the next best thing, lol!
