Each lessee is required to contribute three hours over the course of the season towards the care and upkeep of common areas.
The most important tasks are weeding and wood chipping the common areas, which include the paths surrounding the garden as well as the area under the pergola.
We will also communicate with you by email, Facebook, and through a white board in the shed of other work that needs to be done. The shed has instructions (pictured below) and a place where you log in your work.
2020 Season registrations
We are currently full. If you would like to be notified if an availability pops up during the season or be notified by email next season, complete the contact form.
Did you know that we use a solar-powered well?
The Barrington Community Garden uses a solar-powered well for its water supply. You can read more about how this exciting project came to be.
All garden lessees can help themselves to the compost just outside the garden to amend their plots. There are wheelbarrows and shovels in the shed for your use. Just return when through.

Connect with us Facebook!
Did you know that Barrington Community Garden has a Facebook page. This is a great place to post photos, ask questions (What is this weird bug on my squash), ask others for favors (Can anyone water my plot while I'm out of town), and more.
One of the many donations that the Barrington Community Garden has made to area agencies. Last year 350 pounds of food were donated.
