News & Announcements
Upcoming Community Work Days:
Deer fence is up! Thanks to a generous grant from the RI Foundation, we now have a deer fence. This negates the need for tall fencing around individual plots and is designed to enhance the attractiveness of the garden while also helping create interaction among gardeners. Coming soon, also thanks to the RI Foundation, a community bulletin board to keep you better informed of news and events at the garden.
Toolshed: The tools and wheelbarrows in the shed are available to all lessees to use as needed in caring for their plots. Refer to the email contact the Garden Coordinator for the combination of the lock to the shed. Please be sure to return the tools and lock the shed when through.
Community herb bed: Herb gardens have been planted in each of the four corners of the community space. The herbs are for lessees to snip and use.
Donation plots have been planted for Tap-In, which serves East Bay residents in need, and the Sojourner House, a nonprofit organization which serves victims of domestic violence.
We are thrilled to once again have students from the National Honor Society helping us with the garden this summer, including weeding, watering, and harvesting the donation plots.

Attend monthly meetings
All garden plot lessees are encouraged to attend monthly Committee meetings. They're fun, informative, and are held on the last Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7 pm in the Senior Center.
Parking update: Stay tuned on future parking. Part of the area is going to be restored to wetlands. (We know you'll all miss parking in the mud.) Here is the proposed parking plan for the garden.
