Farmington Community Gardens
A community garden means many things, depending on who you ask. We hope to bring many people together in this venture and look forward to watching our Farmington Community Gardens grow.
Some see a community garden as a place to grow fruit, berries, vegetables, flowers, and herbs in the company of friends and neighbors. For others, it’s a place to reconnect with our past, to appreciate nature, or to get physical exercise. Yet others use community gardens simply because they lack adequate space to have a garden at their home, condo, or apartment.
Regardless of why you are choosing to take part in our community gardens, the activity comes with both responsibilities and rewards and we are delighted you have decided to join us in this wonderful, collaborative community journey.
The Farmington Community Gardens Stewardship Committee maintains, coordinates, and supports the Community Gardens as a site for public gardening using community owned land in the Town of Farmington. The use of both individual and communal gardening spaces for growing fruits, vegetables, and herbs enhances and supplements the nutritional needs of our citizens. The Committee believes that promoting the growth of fruits, vegetables, and herbs using ecologically friendly and green gardening initiatives will foster healthy and sustainable gardening practices, aid in the nutritional support of our citizens, and provide a beneficial use for town land that develops the environmental, ecological, and nutritional literacy of our community.
