Registration open for community gardens

It’s the time of year when Belleville and Hastings County residents can pull on their gardening shoes and start digging.

The Community Development Council of Quinte has seven community garden locations in Belleville and Frankford.

Program coordinator Jim Mallabar says it’s a great way to enjoy fresh vegetables and save money.
