    On the subject of gardening there…. Community garden plots are available for people who have at least two free hours a week to care for a plot. Gardeners must be PRIMARY residents of Godwin Heights school district. These plots do not have access to water. For More info call 534-0054.

    A community Garden for residents in Rogers Lane/ Rogers High school district is also available. This garden does have water supply. Contact Rogers Heights Christian Reformed Church for more information. 532-3174

    Kentwood Parks and Rec also has a community garden off 48th street with water for a small fee. Contact Kentwood Parks and Rec for more info.
