Your plot, city's lot: Newport starts community garden
Green thumbs in Newport will have a new place to dig this spring.
The Newport City Council recently approved the creation of the city's first community garden, a place where residents can secure a spot to grow flowers and vegetables of their own on a piece of unused city land.
"It's a community-builder, for people to get together and share a common interest," City Administrator Brian Anderson said. "And, it's something that was easy enough for us to support and implement."
