Seaside's newest community gardens are ready for planting following a recent dedication. The gardens, located on an old railroad track bed along U.S. Highway 101, also come with a storage shed, built in the shape of a railroad car by Seaside builder Shane Dean, and split-rail fencing connected by metal artwork.

The Seaside Empire Park and Recreation District and the Friends of Community Gardens contributed about $11,000 for the shed, soil and fence. The dedication on April 3 included Mary Blake, director of the SEPRD; Seaside Mayor Don Larson; Jan Barber; and Seaside City Councilor Jay Barber. Jay and Jan Barber are co-chairs of the countywide Friends of Community Gardens group.
