In the mining city people are pulling out the yard tools and beginning to spruce up their gardens, but if you don't have a yard don't worry, there are ways to still exercise your green thumb.
An area non-profit is taking applications for a community garden.
Organizers from the Sacred Ground said they still have five or six plots open.
Each plot is 12 feet by 4 feet and all are raised beds.
The group is also planning for more garden space in the future.
They plan on building about six or seven more raised beds in the garden.
Organizers want folks to know the plots are for everyone to enjoy.
"Great way to grow your own food, but it's also good for a community as far as community building getting people together and learning about soils and growing and it's just a nice, a nice avenue for people in the community," Community Garden Program Coordinator Carol Link said.
The community garden is located on Park Street in uptown right next to the Hummingbird Café.
The program will have a fundraiser on May 16th at 6:30 p.m. and $10 donations are appreciated.
