Pine Bluff to host spring garden week



​The City of Pine Bluff will be hosting a Spring Garden Week from May 9 through May 16.

During this time, the Pine Bluff Community Garden will be open to the public from 7 a.m.  to 7 p.m.

The purpose is to promote physical activity, healthy eating, and the beautification of Pine Bluff.   Residents are welcome to visit, tend garden beds, and help prepare them for planting.

Once prepared, beds will be available for adoption at no charge. Residents may keep any flowers, fruits, or vegetables planted in the beds they adopt and manage. The Pine Bluff Community Garden is located at ​1100 S. Cherry St. Participants are encouraged to bring their own garden supplies and tools.

Participants will be provided ample space to follow social distancing guidelines due to the garden being located outdoors. Additional protective measures against COVID-19 will be implemented to protect the health and safety of the public.
