Love to garden, but don’t have the space? Or are you a beginner looking to try your hand at something beyond a windowsill herb garden? Look no further! Sign ups for Spots at Ramella Park Community Gardens in East Williamson, West Virginia have begun.
Ramella Park Community Gardens have been around since around 2015, says Kristin DeBoard, Marketing and Nutrition Manager for the Williamson Farmers Market. The garden serves as a way to give people who don’t have access to a yard of their own a way to start gardening. The community garden offers three bed sizes: a small 8 ft. bed, a medium 12 ft. bed, and a large 20 ft. bed. They are 10, 15, and 20 dollars respectively, and you only have to pay once for the entire growing season.
There are a limited number of beds left, and if you’d like to sign up for a bed in person, sign ups will be held at Ramella Park Community Gardens on March 1. If you’d like to grab a spot before then, you can call Rebecca with the Williamson Farmers Market at 304-235-3400.
Ramella Park is also open as a city park, so if you don’t have a yard to give you access to a spring day in the sunshine, you can always walk through the gardens to get a peek at what others are growing. Who knows, you might even be inspired to rent a plot and start a garden of your own!
