BEVERLY COMMUNITY GARDEN
The Beverly Community Garden is open and looking for gardeners. If you are interested in having a plot at the garden you may click here:COMMUNITY GARDEN AGREEMENT
The Beverly Community Garden was started in the spring of 2013 with one organic plot of 5 raised beds on Penn Street at the old baseball field. The surrounding neighborhood was invited to participate in this community building initiative. Neighbors did come out to the garden to help with the crops and once again this year the gardeners want to welcome anyone in the city who wants to garden.
Planting took place in the beginning of June and within the month the garden really took off because of the great location. During the summer, the garden produced plenty of great vegetables and herbs like cucumber, zucchini, summer squash, basil, parsley, eggplant and radishes, and tomatoes. Free for the taking, everyone was welcome to the bounty. “With excellent conditions, sunshine from sunrise to sunset and a constant summer breeze we found the location of the gardens to be perfect for growing,” said one participant. If you do not want a plot of your own you may help out at this one.
This year we are plowing up more land and looking for more gardeners. We are also looking for volunteers who may be able to help us with irrigation, in the past we used a large water barrel that we filled weekly. We would also take donations of fence to keep the rabbits out and gardening tools. There are rules, no chemicals and no frowns. So if you like to garden and want a perfect space, head on down and check it out! For more information you may contact Larry or Becky Carlbon at 609-747-8048. The Beverly Community Garden is a Member of the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA).
