We have established help-yourself gardens in two locations in downtown Brattleboro and plan to add more in locations where there is a commitment to maintenance. Container gardens are in the beta phase, thanks to volunteer Tom Green, who built eight prototypes of a wicking barrel container garden. These were placed at our two public gardens and we are experimenting to see which plants do best in these containers. This way, we can expand our reach into neighborhoods where garden space is not available.
If you would like a help-yourself garden in your area, or advice on starting a garden in your yard to donate produce for our Share the Harvest stand, please contact us.

Three peach trees planted behind the office. These bare root trees were planted in April 2019. We don’t expect fruit until 2022.
