Southborough is getting ready to divvy up Community Garden plots again on Breakneck Hill Conservation Land.

Starting tomorrow morning, the public will be invited to buy spots to plant veggies, herbs, or annual flowers.

This year’s details aren’t available yet.* Instead the Town has announced that an online application will be launched at 9:30 am on Wednesday, April 24th. You will be able to find the application and this year’s details here.

In February, the Town announced that they were seeking a new coordination for the Community Garden program. This evening, the Select Board is scheduled to vote on appointing Steve Hinterneder for the role through June 2025. According to his volunteer form, he has been assisting the prior coordinator for a few years, including laying out plots and offering use of his personal tractor with loader and rototilling attachments. His father also hopes to pitch in.

*Although some details (including pricing) may change this spring, you can learn more about the general opportunity and recent rules by reading last year’s post here.

Updated (4/24/24 10:09 am): The link did go “live” this morning as promised. Additional text on the website now clarifies that registration can be done online or by requesting a paper application form. And:

Please note that plots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis with preference given to Southborough residents. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!
