Dunnellon volunteers and the first crop of gardeners for the new Dunnellon Community Garden took root during the past two weekends at the Boys & Girls Club site across from Walmart.

DCG organizers, working for two years to bring the effort to fruition, hosted a “soft opening” with educational programs, tours of the site and the first plantings in the 25 prepared sites rented to area citizens for their use.
