Community Gardening

The Northfield Community is invited to a tour of the Greenvale Park Community Garden, June 23, 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., next to Greenvale School. The schedule of events includes:

10:00-10:30 Tour

10:30-11:00 Tips on gardening and organic gardening

11:00-11:30 Tips on composting

Noon: Picnic lunch. Bring your own picnic, blanket and chairs. Lemonade and cookies provided.

See these beautiful gardens in bloom—orange marigolds, pink petunias, sweet peas, tomato plants, squash and corn seedlings. The garden sprouted from a fruitful collaboration between Northfield Community Gardeners, Healthy Community Initiative, the Northfield Garden Club, and Northfield Schools Community Services.

Thirty Northfield families garden in full (10’x20’) or half plots. The fee for a full plot is $25, and $15 for a half plot. Scholarships are available.

The Gardeners envision these community gardens growing and growing—an expanded plot next year at Greenvale, and other gardens at other locations in Northfield.

The tour is hosted by Northfield Center for Sustainable Living and the Northfield Community Gardeners.
