The Macomb Community Garden is looking forward to growing this year -- growing crops and growing membership.
An informational meeting will be held Wednesday, March 7 at 7:00 pm in the Community Room at Macomb City Hall.
Chairman John Miller said the garden provides an opportunity for those who want to garden but cannot do so at home because of poor soil, too much shade, or some other issue.
Rich Egger's guests are Dave King and Dennis & Ginny Samuelson. They talk about the Conservation Easement Program offered through Prairie Land Conservancy.
King, who is with Prairie Hills Resource Conservation and Development, said the program protects land from development for perpetuity.
