Riverside Community Garden




We are holding a community garden meeting on Monday, March 18, 5:00pm,

in the New London Senior Center library (first room on the right).


Learn about Riverside Community Garden, meet current and prospective gardeners,

and sign up for a bed or two at the garden. Bring seed catalogs for sharing.

We will discuss organic growing, share seeds and tips,

and make plans for the 2019 gardening season.
