Come to the Gardens!

What a transformation! What was once a shrub covered, granite strewn lot has become an open expanse of field, surrounded by granite blocks. It's a blank canvas waiting to turn into a community garden and YOU can help.

Lyndon State College students helped us out last weekend
We have two work days scheduled on Saturday, September 1st and Saturday, September 15th, beginning at 9am and ending at 12pm.

Below is a list of our tasks to complete before the snow falls:

  • Build raised beds from local wood
  • Rake and seed garden areas
  • Create paths with woodchips
Please contact Heather Davis at 802-472-5840 or to sign up as a volunteer or for more information about the Hardwick Community Garden.

The gardens are located at 150 Granite Street and you need to come prepared with work gloves and water bottles.
