Community Garden opens to new gardeners

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

The Ballinger Neighborhood Association has a community garden site on land provided by the Shoreline School District, behind the old Aldercrest Elementary school at 2800 NE 200th, off 25th Ave NE in Shoreline 98155.

Join them on Saturday, April 17, from 9 am to noon, as volunteers help prepare food bank plots and communal garden areas for planting. Bring gloves and hand tools, if you have them.

For more information, call Joyce, BALNA Communiity Garden Coordinator, at 206-364-1438, or email.

Some plots are still available for gardeners. Visit the Community Gardening webpage for application forms and details.

The project is in collaboration with the Shoreline Community Gardening group, whose goal is to plant P-Patch type gardens on land throughout Shoreline. The Ballinger gardens have been assisted by volunteer hours from Rain City Rotary. The Friends of Aldercrest Park donated a redwood picnic table for the site.
