The Old Town Commercial Association invites you to become involved in something bigger than you this spring — Old Town’s Community Garden, located on North Larch Street across from SuCasa. This garden not only produces fresh fruits and vegetables but also serves as a way to bring the people of Old Town together. With the hard work, dedication and passion of those who participate in the garden, a sense of community is fostered in Old Town.
This year marks the fifth growing season, and there are many ways in which you can contribute. You can commit to gardening a specific plot or participate on a wider scale by weeding, watering and harvesting the garden one day per week.
Garden yields can be used in a variety of ways. Some vegetation may be given to local restaurants, while others may prefer to use the garden for their own private use for friends and family. Whichever you decide, the benefits are endless. According to American Community Gardening Association (ACGA), in addition to fostering relationships and improving quality of life, a community garden reduces family food budgets, conserves resources, reduces crime and preserves green space.
So haul out those gardening gloves, and come join us at the Old Town Community Garden. A beautiful garden and great people are waiting for you.
