Terry Bascom is still seeking participants for the Summer Garden program at the Plymouth Schoolhouse. It is open to all ages & can be especially fun for youngsters, whose parents want a space to teach gardening skills. Non-genetically modified seeds will be provided & organic methods will be utilized for the 2’x 25‘ plots. What a great opportunity!
