FHN COMMUNITY GARDEN SPACES AVAILABLE FOR 2016

3/22/2016

Get out in the garden for some exercise, fresh air and – eventually – healthy, fresh produce this year by taking part in FHN's Community Garden!

Spaces are available in FHN's Community Garden for this growing season. The raised garden beds, 4 x 8 feet, are $25 each. The Community Garden is located just west of the FHN Family Healthcare Center – Burchard Hills, 1010 W. Fairway Drive in Freeport.

Applications for the 2016 growing season are due by Friday, May 27, and planting can begin as soon as the beds are prepared.

FHN's Community Garden project is led by a team of FHN staff and Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension, who will be sharing tips on planting and making each plot as productive and maintenance-free as possible. Several learning sessions and other events are planned in connection with the 2016 growing season.
