Garden plots available at East Valley Farms

From staff reports

SPOKANE VALLEY – East Valley Farms, a community garden on the corner of East Wellesley and South Sullivan Roads near East Valley High School, is just getting ready for the growing season.

Garden coordinator Lynette Romney said there are many garden plots still available.

Open garden plots are free and measure as large as a whole bed – 40 feet by 6 feet – or as small as 8 feet by 6 feet.

“We also have field space for more traditional type spaces that measure up to 30-by-30 feet,” Romney said.

Gardeners are responsible for planting, watering and weeding, and they must bring their own hoses and sprinklers.

Donations for the water bill are accepted.

Romney said a seed library available to gardeners holds butternut squash, bush and pole beans, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrot, celery, cucumber, lettuce, pumpkin, summer squash, yellow watermelon and zucchini seeds, as well as many different flower seeds.

The seeds are a couple of years old so the germination rate may be a little lower than normal, but they are free, Romney said.
