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.
