If you’re dreaming of fresh tomatoes or some green beans fresh from the garden, sign up to be part of the new community garden behind the former Anna V. Molloy Elementary School off Meloy Road.
Organized by Marilyn Wilkes and supported by, among others, The University of New Haven, the garden will ban herbicides and pesticides and volunteers will introduce participants to organic farming techniques.Plots in the garden are $30 each, or $20 each for seniors 65 and older.
For details, visit whcommunitygarden.com or visit the West Haven Parks and Recreation Department at 190 Kelsey Avenue in Painter Park.
