ROCKPORT — For the second year that the Rockport Community Gardens have been in operation under the direction of the Rockport Parks and Beautification Committee, it’s time to reserve a space.

The gardens are located at the Marge Jones Community Recreation Fields on Route 90 in Rockport. The plots are 10 feet by 15 feet and each gardener may sign up for a maximum of two plots. The area gets full sun during the day and there is ample parking immediately adjacent to the gardens which is handy for people with limited mobility. There is also a water supply in the garden.

Plots are $25 each and preference is given to Rockport residents, but in this early phase all Knox County residents will be welcome until space gets tight. Gardeners who had plots last year will have preference to keep those same plots this year.
