About the Garden
Riverside Community Garden is located on the corner of Crystal Avenue and Adelaide Street. The garden's 36 raised beds are available to individuals who live and/or work in New London. It is East New London's first Community Garden.
Growing organically protects soil and water, reduces exposure to harmful chemicals, and produces food higher in vitamins and minerals. Ask if you'd like information about organic fertilizing, pest control and sources of organically-grown plants and seeds.
We have begun recruiting gardeners for the 2017 growing season. The cost of renting a 3'X6' bed is $15, with discounted rates available. Download an application, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like more information.
Riverside Community Garden has collected photos of the construction process and plans to continue documenting each year of community gardening here. If you have photographs to add to our site, let us know –we'd appreciate your sharing them with us!
Open registration for 2017 will begin on February 1. Gardeners may sign up for 1 or 2 beds. Beds should be planted by June 1, and regular maintenance (weeding and watering) is required. All members should plan on participating in group activities.
RCG has the following committees: Membership, Events, Upkeep, Education. If you are a member of the Riverside Community Garden and interested in serving on one of the committees – or starting a new one – let us know.
