— LEWISBURG -- How does your garden grow? If you don't have one and want one, stop by the Union County Day Reporting Center on Hafer Road tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., for the kickoff meeting of the county community garden.

All gardeners -- experienced, wannabes and every level in between -- are welcome for this project on the grounds of the former Guard armory, said Union County Commissioner Preston Boop.

Boop will oversee the project that also looks to train those attending the day reporting center, in operation for several months now as an alternative to jail for those sentenced in non-violent crimes.

Light refreshments will be served. The day reporting center is at 480 Hafer Road. For more information or to RSVP, call Cyndi Geiser at (570) 524-3895 or email
