In an effort to get folks to grow more of their own food, and save some money in the process, Henrico County Extension Office is trying to encourage folks to plant their own gardens in a community plot in Lakeside.
Garden plots start at $5 and up for families in need.
As a Gardens Growing Families gardener, you and your family will attend FREE classes and workshop on: Importance of Fruits and Vegetables in Your Diet; Gardening: From Seed to Harvest; Integrated Pest Management and Pesticide Use; Food Preparation and Family Meals; Freezing and Canning; and Preparing for a Fall Garden.
