If you’d like to have a garden this year but don’t have enough room on your own property for it, you don’t have to worry. Logan City plans to offer “Community Gardens.”

On Wednesday, Mayor Craig Petersen said the city has identified a plot for the gardens in the Bridger Park area where there is room for 100 to 130 gardens.

“People will be able to sign up for a nominal cost, maybe $15 (we might even provide a waiver for that), and we’ll provide a garden plot,” Petersen explained on <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2016_02_18_324_42093_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program</a>. “We’ve actually worked with USU Extension.

“USU has a program promoting community gardens. Extension will actually manage that for us. People will be able to call Extension and say ‘I want a garden,’ and have at it.”

The mayor said the students at nearby Bridger Elementary School may be able to get involved with the gardens as part of their curriculum. He said Bridger Park will also be getting some new pickleball courts before long.
