It is run by the Garden Committee and the gardeners who rent the plots.
Many of our gardeners do not have space of their own for producing vegetables and the community garden provides a way for them to grow healthy organic food for themselves and their families as well as being a social environment for them to share ideas and organic practices with like-minded gardeners.
Today the community garden is organized by a group of Marsh Sanctuary volunteers and provides 40 garden plots of varying sizes to local gardeners. Use the information request form below for informatio regarding plot availability.

For 2021, we are excited the Rewilding School will be using some of the garden plots for their education programs throughout the year.
The community garden is truly a family experience as many days children can be seen playing and learning in the garden.
