New community garden for Indian Hills neighborhood

Finishing touches for new Indian Hills community garden in Quincy.

On Saturday, finishing touches were put on the fence surrounding a new community garden in Quincy.

Kids and adults came out to paint a white picket fence that surrounds the garden located across the street from the

Indian Mounds pool


Dana Caley and her husband live in the neighborhood and came up with the idea for the garden.

They purchased the 120 feet long by 40 feet wide piece of land and turned it into the garden.

Dana Caley says that they will plant one big garden instead of asking people to pay for their own spot.

"We would ask people to come and work alongside of us. So we'll have a shift in the morning for watering," Caley said. "A shift in the evening everyday for weeding, pruning, harvesting. And whoever wants to participate and devote the time and the work to it, we're just going to divide up the harvest among everyone."

If you live in the Indian Hills neighborhood and would like to participate in the community garden you can contact Dana Caley at 257-1331.
