Signup's underway for Kent community garden
Published 11:53 pm, Tuesday, June 25, 2013
The Kent Land Trust is accepting registration for the fourth season of the town's community garden.
Gardeners have included individuals, neighbors or friends sharing plots, communally tended plots for the benefit of the Kent Food Bank, Scouts, church organizations and schoolchildren.
Water and a storage shed are centrally located and open to all gardeners.
Picnic tables are available.
Last summer, garden "security" was vastly improved by the addition of a deer fence.
At the end of last season, students from South Kent School built a multilevel raised bed to make gardening accessible to those who are unable to garden at ground level.
The bed can accommodate as many as four gardeners.
Forty-three 4-foot by 10-foot plots are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a seasonal rate of $30; gardeners may reserve multiple plots, for $15 each additional plot.
Applications are available at the entrance to Town Hall and by emailing email@example.com.
