Barrington Community Garden Spring Festival, April 27, 10 am to 4 pm
This is a great opportunity to meet fellow gardeners, ask questions and get info from a Master Gardener, exchange plants, and get free seeds.
Get help wood chipping your North and East Pathways:
April 27 only
During the Spring Festival we have arranged for student volunteers to help with shoveling woodchips. The student volunteers will shovel the wood chips into wheelbarrows and you will only need to transport them to your pathways and spread them – cutting your time at least in half! We encourage all lessees to take advantage of this ONE-TIME opportunity!
Perennial Flower Exchange
For most of us our love of gardening extends beyond vegetables to flowers as well. As such, at the Spring Festival we will be hosting a Perennial Flower Exchange. We will have two sessions: one at 11 am and one at 1:30 pm.
Here’s how it will work:
Free resources from URI to help you plan for 2019
Download the updated URI Planting Calendar. This table lists the planting time and days till harvest by vegetable and is a great resource.
URI Hotline: The URI Gardening and Environmental Hotline is staffed by trained URI Master Gardeners to help you identify plants and troubleshoot problems in the garden. Snap a photo with your smartphone and send it to email@example.com, or call (401) 874-4836 to speak to someone directly.
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.
