Four new Red Deer garden plot sites have been snapped up.

The City of Red Deer announced on Monday that the plots in various areas of the city were sold out, but colder than normal weather means they won’t be ready for planting until May 19.

They are at Barrett Park at 4711 39th Street, Normandeau neighbourhood park at 5320 – 67th Street, Red Deer College, and the Environmental Services site south of the Red Deer landfill at 1709 49th Avenue.

“All the garden plots sold fast this year,” said Parks superintendent Richard Poth.

“That means next year we can look at expanding. It’s just one more step in the right direction when it comes to making Red Deer an even more sustainable community.”

The plots replace the former garden plot north of 67th Street. That garden area had its last season in 2008 due to pending development.

The gardens give residents the chance to plant everything from carrot and potatoes to peas and strawberries.
