This land has fed nine generations of our family since 1837.  Our goal is to use this same soil to cultivate relationships with our neighbors through the Community Garden.  We hope to empower those that come with information not just on how to garden, but also on how to connect with the earth and from where we come.

Garden Rules and Regulations

  1. Each gardener is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of their garden plot. Watering, weeding, harvesting and any other garden related maintenance are all the responsibility of the gardener. Gardeners may arrange for other gardeners to water their plots.

  2. Tools will be made available for use during the regularly scheduled work time each week. A limited number of tools, hoses and watering equipment will be available in the community garden storage bin for use during non-scheduled work times. Regularly scheduled work times will be posted on the garden Facebook group.

  3. Each gardener will be given the code to the garden and the storage bin for access to tools and watering equipment. Gardeners are responsible for knowing each time they work in the garden. Do not share the code with non-members. Keep garden gate and storage bin locked at all times and return all tools.

  4. Children are welcome in the garden but must be accompanied by an adult and must be supervised at all times.

  7. The application of herbicides (weed killers) to the garden plots is prohibited.

  8. Assignment of garden plots will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. Preference for next year's plots will be given to this year's participants first.
