Garden plots to be available 
The Grayling Community Garden plans to have plots available around Memorial Day for any interested Crawford County resident. The Community Garden property, located at the corner of Madsen and Mary Ann Streets, has been made available courtesy of the Carl W. Borchers Post Veterans of Foreign Wars #3736. Plots will vary in size depending on the number of gardeners but all are available free of charge. The Grayling Community Garden is also seeking volunteers to help maintain plots which will grow food for the community. Food from this plot will go to individuals and families via the Crawford County Christian Help Center Food Pantry, River House Shelter, Crawford AuSable School pantries, and the Commission on Aging. To sign up for a plot go to by May 8 or to help with the community plot, contact the Grayling Community Garden at 989-348-7123.
