Community Garden

Community Garden

An onsite community garden replicates a farm-to-table model and provides shopping guests with access to wholesome and fresh produce. Depending on the season, it’s not uncommon for pantry visitors to leave with acorn squash, vine-ripe tomatoes, crisp lettuce, pungent herbs, among other veggies. 

We reserve 24 4×8 feet raised garden beds for the community to rent for $35 for the season. This fee covers the use of tools, wheelbarrows, and some seeds and starts.

  • Applications for a garden bed are due early April
  • Garden season typically opens in May

Our beautiful community garden includes trellises, food pantry and pollinator flower beds, raspberry and blueberry rows, and an herb section. Visitors are welcome to relax on the bench while reading a book from the Little Free Library.

Garden Events

Keep an eye on our website for community events – in the past, we’ve had garden potlucks, music, weeding parties, arts and crafts, and poetry.
