BANGOR – Currently all 128 above ground garden beds are occupied, and there are several people on a waiting list. The growing popularity of the beds not only holding individual value, but also a sense of community.
“It brings just that, a community place for folks to come and plant a few things and get together. We have a few activities here throughout the course of the summer that the cooperative extension is a big help in organizing and putting together, so it’s a spot here in town that folks can come and get together and compare notes and see how each other is doing and encourage each other as well.” Tracy Willette, Director, Bangor Parks and Recreation
The plots cost twelve dollars and fifty cents for the summer season.
