Forest St. Community Garden hosts membership drive

(WEAU) – People gathered to learn more and sign up for the Forest St. Community Garden.

A membership drive was held at the Eau Claire Community Table Monday night. This will be the fourth season for the community garden. An individual membership costs $10, while a family membership is $20.

A coordinator of the project says the garden is not just for those who don't have space or land for a plot of their own. One of the garden coordinators Kerri Kiernan says "this garden is great for people who are new at gardening, for people who aren't going to be around all summer. So if you're going to be gone for a week, sometimes you got to find someone to take care of your garden and that can be difficult so this garden is great for if you can't be there the whole time."

Members get access to the shared volunteer garden and the produce is shared. Extra produce is donated to the Community Table of Eau Claire.
