Stow Road, Marlborough Community Garden Plot Sign Up

It’s that time of year again to think about gardening! The City of Marlborough has a community garden on Stow Road where residents can grow organic vegetables and flowers. For those interested in obtaining a garden plot a meeting will be held as follows:

Date: Thursday March 12, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: Marlborough City Hall – Memorial Hall, 140 Main Street
What: Learn about the garden and sign up for a garden plot.

The garden is located at the Cider Knoll/Mello Family Meadow conservation land, next to the small parking lot on Stow Rd. The garden, which had its third successful year last year, is ready to receive new gardeners. There are 42 plots total, some are full size plots approximately 10’ x 20’ and some are half size plots approximately 10’ x 10’ in size. The rental fee of $25 per season per full plot, and $15 per season for a half plot will cover the cost of a garden plot and water. There is plenty of free parking at the site. Garden plots will be open for planting starting April 15th, weather permitting.

Spaces are assigned to returning gardeners first and on a lottery basis for the remaining plots. A little more than half the gardeners from last year are returning so there are plots still available for this years’ planting season. Sign up will begin at the March 12th meeting and will remain open until all plots are taken.

Questions?: If you cannot attend the meeting but are interested, you may contact the Conservation Commission by calling Priscilla Ryder at the Conservation Department 508-460-3768 or by e-mail at pryder@marlborough-ma.gov.

Nordic Walkers burn up to 46% more calories than traditional walkers while the low impact nature of the activity makes this ideal for all fitness levels.
