The Barrington Community Garden will hold onsite registration for 5’ x 20’ plots on Saturday, March 30, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and on Sunday, March 31, from 10:00 am to noon. Plots are available for $25 and are available to Barrington residents only.
Download the registration packet.
Payment must be made by check. The check should be imprinted with a Barrington address or, alternatively, the application should be accompanied by a copy of a valid RI driver’s license showing the lessee’s Barrington address.
NOTE TO THOSE WHO LEASED IN 2018
Returning lessees are able to register to lease a plot about two weeks before registration opens to all Barrington residents (starting March 17). This is so you may reserve the same plot you had last year or switch to a new plot, as available.
Your registration pack must be received by March 27 in order to guarantee the same plot as last year.

We are now on Facebook!
Barrington Community Garden now 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.

We take great pride in caring for our dedicated garden plots where we grow organic food that we distribute to those in need.
