Monmouth Community Garden: Open for a 5th Season!
After a very wet, rainy, and chilly spring, the Monmouth Community Garden is finally ready for planting!
This summer marks the 5th season that the Bates Mill has hosted the garden by providing the physical space and supplying the water on-site. Although it's already mid-June, things are just beginning to get going - Mother Nature has not been too cooperative this year. Thank goodness for the sun we've been having recently.
If you'd like more information on the MCG, please visit our brand new webpage, Monmouth Community Garden.
Many of our meetings and garden events are open to the community, and we encourage anyone interested to get involved! Any special dates will be posted in our "NEWS, UPDATES, & EVENTS" section, so please check back.
One such event will be an on-site Walk n' Talk with UMaine Extension Associate Professor Caragh Fitzgerald on Wednesday, July 17th from 6:00 - 7:30PM. Join us to discuss current and upcoming vegetable garden challenges (such as pests!) and what to do about them. Even if you don't have a plot in our garden but have your own elsewhere or just a general interest in gardening, we welcome you to attend. There's lots to learn, so mark your calendars and bring your questions!
We still have 2 plots available if you (or someone you know) is interested in renting a 10' x 20' plot for the 2019 season. It's not too late to hop on board! If you'd like to join us this summer in growing your own vegetables, contact us here.
