In order to reach their goal of raising $11,600 to help their garden grow (quite literally), the Dunedin Community Garden Association is holding a yard sale fundraiser today and tomorrow, March 11-12.

The Dunedin Parks and Recreation Department signed a 3-year agreement with the group last October, allowing them to use a space of open land in Eagle Scout Park for their community garden project free of charge and even paying for the first year's insurance. But the issue for the association now is garnering the money to continue their work and get the garden up and running.

"We need funds," Julie Vogel, secretary of the association and one of the four core board members of the group, told the Dunedin Patch. "Not only to become a 501(c)(3) [non-profit group]. We need funds to actually start the garden."
