Community Garden gets ready for spring

Volunteer Denise Doughty and Master Gardener Joyce Orr showed off the new hoop house at the Community Garden, which can be found at Erickson Park in Cathlamet. The new structure is in place thanks to an anonymous donor and volunteer labor from Chris Holmes, Craig Nielsen, John Wells, Sue Docker, Orr, Doughty, Roger Kavan, along with an assist from Kim and Mike Howell. Orr, Doughty, and Kavan were working last Wednesday to get the community garden ready for spring planting. Volunteers and master gardeners have 17 raised beds that they use to grow fresh food for local food banks. Other plots are tended by local residents and families who need a little space to grow their own food. A few spots are still available for would-be gardeners.
