Officially opened for the spring 2015 semester, the Grow Beach! Community Garden located off of Atherton St. and Earl Warren Drive, lacks equipment for potential gardeners.

The application to rent a plot officially closed on Dec. 19, according to the Beach Synch website. The application on the website states that there would be “96 5 ft. by 5 ft. raised boxes organized in rows of four” available for rent. As of Sunday, there are 24 rectangular plots outlined by paint in the dirt.

The application also states that there would be equipment and tools provided by Associated Students, Inc. and storage shed at gardeners’ disposal. As of Sunday, neither are present in the garden.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac online, the optimal time to plant and harvest beets, carrots, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, leeks, lettuce and turnips is from January through March.
