Medfield Community Garden’s 2020 Registration Now Open

From Neal Sanders –

Medfield Community Garden’s 2020 Registration Now Open

Is growing fresh vegetables something you would like to do?  Have you tried to grow them in your back yard, but found you had too much shade?  Do you live in a condo or apartment that has no space for gardens?  If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, the town of Medfield has a possible solution for you: the Medfield Community Garden. 

Registration for spaces at the garden located on Plain Street off Route 27 is now open for the 2020 season, and ends when the last space is filled.  Plots are available on a first-request basis and usually go quickly.  A 300-square-foot plot provides ample room for a variety of different vegetables for most families. Approximately 12 plots are available for this season.

            Both novice or experienced gardeners will find the Community Garden offers a great opportunity to learn and grow.  The Garden is located on Conservation Commission land at the former Holmquist Farm on the south side of town.  The site provides all-day sun, a scarce commodity for many Medfield residents.

            Never had a vegetable garden, or feel you’d like a refresher course, or more information on growing in this area?  Master Gardener and lecturer Betty Sanders will offer a freshly updated program on planning, planting and growing a garden in this area.  The presentation will be held on Saturday, March 14, at 10:30 a.m. in the Medfield Library.

            Gardeners provide their own seeds or seedlings, agree to fence their plot, and keep it weed-free throughout the season.  The town provides a ready-to-plant site, wood chips for paths, and on-site-water.  Because the Community garden is on town-owned Conservation land, gardeners are not allowed to use any herbicides or inorganic insecticides.   

The Community Garden has now been on Plain Street for more than fifteen years.  As a result of good gardening practices, the site is rich in organic nutrients, eliminating the need for almost all fertilizers and additives.

Residents can apply for a plot by contacting garden co-manager Neal Sanders at 508-359-9453 or n_h_sanders@yahoo.com.  Plots measuring 15 feet by 20 feet are $18, plus a one-time fee for joining the garden of $20.
