ORONO, Maine (WABI) - The University of Maine is offering up some guidance for those that use community gardens across the state.
They are hosting webinars titled, Community Gardening in a Time of Social Distancing.
Those involved say that as people prepare to work in these gardens - it's important that there is planning in place on who is using the garden..
When they use it - and what's being planted.
"Thinking about where we can minimize risk and that really starts with evaluating who is working in the gardens this season," said Pamela Hargest, a Horticulture Professional. "So, maybe someone could otherwise afford to purchase fresh produce from a local farm maybe they could take the season off. So we can reduce the amount of people that are going in and out of that community garden."
They are offering a webinar Tuesday night with advice.

There will also be another next week.
