MASON, OH (FOX19) - Each year, more colorful flowers, sweeter fruits, and bigger vegetables are introduced to the markets, and they may not be carried at your local garden store. But you can grow them yourself.
Growing your own plants from seed can be more economical, a great way to introduce children to gardening, and an opportunity to help others. Learn how and when to start your seeds in a free hands-on class with David Riggs and Shawn Ford at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, at Mason Community Center.
No space to garden? Try a plot in the Mason Community Garden on Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road. Jack Tager and Garry Miller, gardeners who have volunteered to lead the Community Garden, will be at the presentation on March 6 to answer any questions you might have and to help you reserve your community garden spot.
Vegetables and flowers grown at the garden may be used for you own needs or donated to Mason Food Pantry.
