Kent community garden plots available
The Kent Land Trust is accepting registration for its 10th season of the town’s community garden.
The garden, located in the field to the east side of Kent Center School, behind the Kent Greenhouse & Gardens, is managed using sustainable practices and is pesticide and herbicide free.
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.
Over the years, improvements have included a deer fence, the shed and a multi-level raised bed.
Plots measuring 4 feet by 10 feet are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a seasonal rate of $30; gardeners may reserve multiple plots, for $15 each additional.
Applications are available at the entrance of the Kent Town Hall, at www.kentlandtrust.org/community-garden, and by emailing .
Volunteers are welcome by calling 860-488-9185.
