SIDNEY — The People’s Garden, a community gardening effort at Agape Distribution, needs soil.

Begun in 2014 with four raised beds, the garden now has 50 raised beds and is in need of 400 cubic yards of soil. Horse and/or cow manure is also needed.

All the gardening labor is provided by volunteers and the vegetables and fruits produced are harvested for distribution to people who visit Agape Distribution for groceries.

The gardens are managed by Shelby County Master Gardeners Conelia Dixon, of Sidney, and Michelle Stephenson, of Houston.

To donate bagged or trucked soil or manure, call 726-9525.
