Plattsburgh, NY, Sep 13, 2010 — A second year of planting seeds for food and friendship in a community garden in Plattsburgh was a success. The Plattsburgh Community Garden Group manages dozens of garden plots in the city that are offered to residents to grow their own produce. The gardeners come from a variety of gardening backgrounds, some novices, some experts. There's even a teaching garden plot. Doug Butdorf chairs the gardening group, and told Todd Moe that gardeners took home, or shared, lots of healthy tomatoes and other veggies from more than forty garden plots this year.
