ACE sponsors community garden in Wellington

Hankering for some hands-on gardening and don’t have the space? The ACE Community Gardens in Wellington might be just the ticket.

For a $25 fee, you’ll have your own plot or raised bed to grow fresh veggies, herbs, flowers or prize-winning pumpkins. Proceeds go to the Boys & Girls Club in Wellington. Organic plots are available.

In addition to providing the garden space east of the store’s 4104 Jefferson Ave. location, Wellington ACE Hardware is providing dirt and manure, water and a discount on garden supplies.

Master Gardener Marie Timmer will be on site on May 21 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to talk about raised-bed gardening.

For more information contact Sarah Mayfield at 970-372-1399.
