Another new community garden is forming, this time in Greenland:
Greenland Community Garden
Living Innovations, a provider of in-home and community-bases services for elders and people with disabilities has a corporate office at 47 Tide Mill Road in Greenland, situated between the Golf and Ski Warehouse and the historic Weeks Mansion on Route 33. This growing season they would like to have the company of gardeners at their home, located on four acres of nicely landscaped property with fields fit for planting. Living Innovations will provide the land, fencing, water and a portable toilet. One of the sections of the garden will be reserved for a group of active seniors who belong to Wentworth Connections, a membership organization and senior center on Parrott Avenue in Portsmouth. The other plots will be available to Greenland and other Seacoast residents on a first-come basis.
Living Innovations is seeking gardeners and volunteers for a Community Garden Committee to oversee the garden. A representative of the UNH Cooperative Extension will help get things going; and we have guidebooks from successful projects in other communities.
If you are interested in getting involved in establishing Greenland’s Community Garden, please contact: Neal Ouellett or Veronica Polak, Living Innovations, 47 Tide Mill Road, Greenland, NH, (603) 422-7308 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Consider joining a community garden if you live in place that’s too shaded or doesn’t have enough space, or if you simply enjoy gardening in the company of others!
