The planting season is approaching, and volunteers are busy getting the town’s community garden ready to go. The field, located in a corner of the Breakneck Hill Conservation Land, was plowed last weekend and the plots will be laid out on Saturday.

The garden is run by volunteers, and coordinators Jeff Rudd and Debbi Molinaro passed along their thanks to John Gulbankian for plowing the field and advice on soil preparation. They also thank David Gaffney for lending a dump truck and trailer to transport the tractor to the field.

If you want to help out, Rudd says volunteers are invited to the garden on Saturday to help lay out the plots and install watering stations. The work begins at 9:30 am.

And if you’re looking for a space to plant veggies, flowers, and herbs, there are still garden plots available. The cost is $20 for a 10-foot by 10-foot plot, and $25 for a 10-foot by 20-foot plot. Email for more information or to reserve your plot.
