Letter: Get busy planting in Woodland
Sunday, June 24, 2012
Why is it that only a few people want to make use of Woodland's city community garden? They have 90 plots that are tilled and ready to be rented to city residents for a fee of $30 for seniors and $40 for non-seniors. The plots are 20-by-20 and you may rent as many as you wish. This year we have only rented three plots; that is not very good.
By comparison, the city of Longview has 126 plots and has rented all but four. The plots there are 20-by-40 but rent for $52, and 10-by-40 plots rent for $29. In Longview the renter must till the plot.
The city of Woodland would like to have comments on the garden and reasons why people are not taking advantage of the service. Please go to the city website which is http://www.ci.woodland.wa.us. On the left side click on Citizen Comments Form and add your comments. This is very important to the future of the city's community garden.
