Miki Mappen, Rotary Garden coordinator, said local gardeners are welcome to come out and help tend the garden.

“A note to gardeners—all beds are now taken. But if you still want to garden and harvest, don’t despair. We have an increasing number of community garden beds, come help out when you can, and share in the produce,” Mappen said.

Mappen said the garden was created with a vision to bring together people from diverse backgrounds and build a sense of connection and community.
