Accessible Raised Beds in a Community Garden

CapeHeart(z6ccMA)April 26, 2003

Hello - Just wanted to share an example of a community coming together to create raised garden beds. Many helped - our selectmen, boy scouts, a loyal plumber, conservation advocates, members of the disabled rights group, etc.

Anyone else who participates in a community access garden please email me - if you have a website please send it and I will link it to our page.

We are located in Harwichport on Cape Cod, MA. Anyone living locally wishing to use a bed for the summer can email me . There are 7 beds and there are 2 available for May 2003. Also there are 4 barrels available.


Happy Gardening!

I guess by now all your available space is spoken for. Did you make provision for what happens if someone must abandon a bed or barrel in mid growing season?

Hi Clare

Unfortunately some of our members passed on - last year in their memory we maintained their gardens. This year we have a few new folks working with us. We all help each other - watering, deadheading, weeding, etc. We not only have plots but barrels to plant in and anyone can bring a barrel and join us. We have two benches and a picnic table and a large bin for compose. If we ever have an empty plot we contact our local newspaper and COA and let them know. We get together every spring to clean up the plots and plant usually Memorial Day weekend but we are on Cape Cod and the weather has been terrible tooooooo cold and rainy. So hopefully next weekend we will all join each other. :-)
