It’s the time of year when Belleville and Hastings County residents can pull on their gardening shoes and start digging.
The Community Development Council of Quinte has seven community garden locations in Belleville and Frankford.
Program coordinator Jim Mallabar says it’s a great way to enjoy fresh vegetables and save money.
Mallabar says the gardens fed more than 200 people last year.
Registration is on a first-come first-serve basis.
The gardens are:
· 160 Roblin Road
· NEW: Salvation Army Belleville Community Church, 290 Bridge Street West
· Community Partners For Success-Frankford, 100 North Trent Street
· St. Columba Presbyterian Church, located at 520 Bridge Street East
· St. Thomas Anglican Church, located at 201 Church Street
· Quinte Alliance Church, 373 Bridge Street West
· Bayview Park, 75 Bay Drive
The Community Development Council has also joined a partnership with the Salvation Army to open up extra garden beds.
