What: York County 4-H and Penn State Cooperative Extension volunteers spent Wednesday and Thursday preparing planting boxes for a community garden to be built in York.

Where: 234 S. Pershing Ave.

Who can participate: The garden will have 15 plots available to any interested community members, but more could be added if additional people are interested, said Roxanne Price, extension 4-H coordinator.

Email Tia Underkoffler, 4-H's urban educator, at tmp156@ag.psu.edu to get involved.

What will be grown: Participants can plant flowers and vegetables. Master gardeners will create a native flower bed to demonstrate uses for native flora, and a composting bin will also be available, Price said.

When: Organizers hope to have the plots ready for planting by next week.
