The month of February usually brings to mind images of skiing or building a snowman, not working
in a garden.  But the folks at Capital Dsitrict Community Gardens are urging area residents to
think about gardening now!

The organization manages 34 community gardens in Albany, Troy, Latham, Rensselaer, Water-
Vliet and North Greenbush, several of which are still under development.  And they are encouraging
people to call them now at
518 274-8685 if they want a plot this Spring.  Program manager Sharon
DiLorenzo says "Since we start signing people up in February, most gardens are filled up by April.
Now is the time to let  us know that you're interested."

A phone call to their Troy-based Office will get you information on when and where to sign up for
a garden plot of your own. 

Capital District Community Gardens, Inc. is a private, nonprofit community service organization
