Village Garden

The Village Garden is a demonstration/learning community garden where residents of all ages and abilities are invited to volunteer, share skills, and grow organic, pesticide-free herbs, vegetables, and flowering plants. 

The garden donates most of its harvested crops to local soup kitchens and food pantries, with the remaining vegetables used for garden classes and special events. Any small surplus beyond those purposes gets shared among the volunteers. 

It’s a year-round endeavor. We start all the vegetables, herbs, and flowers from seeds in the winter through early spring under grow lights in Village Hall. As soon as our growing season ends in November, we begin preparations for the next one.  

Feel free to stop by during open hours to volunteer or just visit. We love to show you what’s growing and give you a fresh bouquet of organic herbs.

To learn more about the garden, special events, volunteer, or make a donation, visit:
