SUWANEE - Want access to the very freshest herbs and produce? Here’s your opportunity to grow your own: The City of Suwanee will begin accepting applications for plots in next year's Harvest Farm Community Garden on Wednesday, October 3. Applications will be accepted from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at White Street Park, where the community garden is located.

The garden's 76 plots are available first to City of Suwanee residents and then to other area residents. The annual fee for a plot ranges from $50-$100, depending upon the size of the plot requested; City residents receive a 25 percent discount.

Applications are available at www.suwanee.com.

"When my family and I were looking at Suwanee last year as a possible place to live," says Julie Chahboune, "the Harvest Farm Community Garden was a huge selling point. My kids love coming to the garden…and we've all enjoyed the experience of meeting the other plot holders. Gardeners are some of the nicest, most generous people I've ever met. They not only share information and anecdotes, but their extra produce, too."
