The Kent Land Trust has announced it is accepting registration for the fourth season of the town's community garden.

The garden, situated 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.

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 of the Town Hall and by emailing
