Community Garden

The Beach Lake Community Garden, located behind Beach Lake United Methodist Church opposite the Carousel Amusement Park on Rt. 652 has garden parcels available for the Spring.  These parcels are about 12' x 40' each and we only ask for a contribution of $15.00. Our garden uses natural organics only and the harvest is all yours to enjoy. We do, however, encourage our gardeners, as well as home gardeners, to "Plant-A-Row For The Hungry."  The collected food is then taken to food pantries in our area.

Call now to reserve your parcel for the Spring or ask questions, by calling Sherry at 570-493-2222 or email mzzzzg@yahoo.com.  Open to all in our area and provided by your community.

*For the 2013 season, all of the parcels are currently taken, however, if you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please email  your name and contact information to Sherry at mzzzzg@yahoo.com  and she will be in touch with you if a parcel becomes available.
