Jay seeking community gardeners

AUSABLE FORKS — The Town of Jay will once again be taking applications for the Community Garden located on the Grove Road in AuSable Forks hamlet.

Applications for the 15 individual raised-bed plots in the garden are now available at Town of Jay offices in the Community Center in AuSable Forks.

Returning gardeners will be given first priority, and the remaining plots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis once a completed application has been turned in to the Town of Jay Supervisor’s Office.

There is annual fee of $20 per plot, and guidelines and rules for the garden are included with the application.

Most of the materials and tools for the garden were made available by a Creating Healthy Places grant that the Town of Jay received from the Essex County Department of Public Health. The raised beds were built by the town and much of the soil preparation was done by town staff, the Community Garden Committee and other volunteers.

For more information or to obtain an application packet, contact Deputy Clerk Carol Greenley-Hackel at the Town of Jay, 647-2204, or email
