2017 Garden Opening
The 2017 Community Garden Season has officially begun! The gate was opened on April 12, which nows allows gardeners access to the garden road. Parking is available along the side of the garden road, just please make enough room to allow cars to safetly pass. The faucets are also up and running.
The untilled garden plots have aluminum tags attached and are numbered. Any new gardeners taking on new untilled plots with numbers between 29-40 are in a new section that have not been previously used. These plots will be staked out by April 21, 2017 and you can expect to use them from there. The posts with yellow tops are our reference posts; please do not move them.
For the Spring 2017 growing season, tilled plots are identified by orange flag markers at their corners and a pink or yellow stake, bearing the plot number, near the center of each plot. Please return the stakes to the collection point near the bulletin board as soon as you take possession of your plot.
The plots were tilled on May 25, 2017.
A persistent issue is encroachment of plots. The Commission and staff will layout plots which are generally 20' x 30'. Any question should be referred to the Commission. Also if you are going to have someone till or turn your plot please be sure to have Staff verify that the plot or plots being turned are indeed those that are rented to you.
If you have any questions please call the office (508-358-3669).
Also, as a reminder, at the end of the season please, please pick up after yourself. There is a great deal of material that is left behind that creates problems with plowing and laying out the gardens the next year.
