JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — The Grow Jamestown community gardening effort is in full bloom as a bunch of gardens on vacant lots have sprouted up around the city.
In its first year, the program has seen a good public response. There are three gardens around the city with over 40 raised beds and most of them are full of plants.
Residents living in apartments or with small yards now have the opportunity to rent a plot to grow their own vegetables; all while using vacant property.
"And you drive by it everyday and you just wonder why we're not making use of this stuff. So this is a great way of making use of the property and giving the city something back something to take care of and have pride in," said Christopher Larson, Greenhorn Gardener.
