COME GROW WITH US

The Bolton Community Garden has a few plots available starting in April 2017. The garden consists of twenty
15 X 22 foot plots, and is located off of Route 117 just east of the center of town. The Bolton Community Garden was started in 2009 with a mission to provide a place for people to grow fresh produce, to promote a community gathering place, to provide education on sustainable farming, to increase general food security, and to widen ecological awareness and protection of our natural resources. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or novice, you’d  have the opportunity to learn from others  as well as swap ideas, seedlings, seeds and produce if you wish. All B
olton residents and employees welcome. For more information on the garden location and guidelines, go to the Community Garden page or call Dave on Sundays at 978-779-5422. You can also email the garden at info@BoltonLocal.org.
