You never know what you will harvest at the garden...


Please join us for our Spring Gardening Meeting at the Milford Public Library April 8, from 10am -12pm.  You may also email us at info@growinggreensmilford.org to rent plots for 2017.

Hello Gardeners.

Are you ready to start another season of community gardening? We sure are! With spring right around the corner it's time to start planning our gardens.

Join us for the Milford Community Garden Spring Meeting on April 8 from 10am-12pm at the Milford Public Library, Community Meeting Room (to your right as you enter).  All returning and new gardeners are invited to attend to secure plots for 2017.

We will provide an overview of the garden, our values/mission, discuss gardener responsibilities, 2017 contract, and answer any questions you may have. After contracts are received you will be assigned a plot.

Attached you will find 2017 Calendar and Contract. 
Please print the contract, carefully read, sign and bring to meeting on April 8 with a check or cash to secure your plot deposit and rental cost.

We are looking forward to meeting new gardeners and welcoming back continuing gardeners as we get ready to dig into another plentiful organic gardening season.

On behalf of the Core Team, we thank you for your continued support and participation and look forward to seeing you Saturday April 8.

Warm regards,

Julie, Carol, Diane, Laurie, & Janette

If you are interested in joining the Core Team we welcome the help.
