       The Bear Creek Garden Association still has plots available for the coming season.
       The nonprofit manages the organic Charmaine Nymann Community Garden in Bear Creek Regional Park East, southeast of 21st and Rio Grande streets.
       Gardeners pay an annual fee, which covers spring tilling and watering for the season. They also agree to do four hours of volunteer work per season to support the two-acre, fenced-in location.
       Among the garden's 104 plots are four dedicated to local charities and a fifth that grows produce for the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, according to the association website, bearcreekgardens.org.
       “We also have a group that works with disabled adults this year, with caregivers and clients working together,” added garden spokesperson Karen Stith.
       For more information, call 634-4433 or 576-2664.
