Spots are still open in Wellman’s Community Garden. At a meeting held earlier this month 19 people signed up for a 10 by 12 foot plot on the piece of land across from the Wellman YMCA. Karen Van De Walle, FFA instructor at Iowa Mennonite School and member of the Wellman Garden Committee, says they’ll set a date for planting the communal portion of the garden next week.
She adds all of the seeds have been donated by different seed companies or purchased using funds from an FFA grant. The vegetables grown in the communal garden will be donated to the Asbury United Methodist Church food shelf and Wellman Senior Dining.
