Backyard Gardener Part 12: The Bangor Community Garden

Written by 

BANGOR - If you've ever thought about growing your own garden but didn't have the space for one, there's still hope. This week our Erin Thomas takes us to another location, where others are using their green thumbs. Here's the latest in "Backyard Gardener."

This week I met up with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension's Kate Garland to see how gardening is taking shape in the community.

A once barren parking lot overgrown with weeds is now a planters paradise.

This space on Essex Street holds about a hundred 4-by-8 foot raised beds, rented out each year for a small fee. Each one is personalized and planted according to the gardener's preference.

So if you think you're garden is done producing, consider the idea of planting again.
