Valley gardeners will pay more for their green thumbs, reports the Daily News, which reports that fees at two community gardens will rise from $25 to $120 per plot. "The increase would apply to the 807-plot Sepulveda Garden Center in Encino and the 132-plot Orcutt Ranch Community Garden in Canoga Park, both operated by the city. It's one of several moves officials say are rooted in city cutbacks that have forced the parks department to cover more of its own budget, including $16 million a year in water and electricity costs that used to come out of the city's general fund."
