An idea that essentially flopped a few years ago has unexpectedly found success this spring.
In the spring of 2014, the City of Clinton attempted a community garden concept which would allow community members who did not have access to or wanted a hobby, to be able to grow plants in the summer months. The idea never materialized according to City Administrator Tim Followell.
Followell indicates he is not exactly sure why, a few years later, the community garden concept has taken off but he indicates it has and the few plots they have available at the Jefferson Street flood plain, is full.
Followell indicates because there is only one water source available at the plot site, they cannot expand towards the west, or towards Alexander Street.
