COMMUNITY GARDENS: Plots are available
Apr 21, 2006

The Ridgefield Community Garden on Halpin Lane will open again this spring for
those who are interested in gardening in a fenced area with available water,
10 by 20 foot plots of ground and sunshine.
The garden was started in 1977 on the site of the present Prospect Ridge
housing complex. There were 53 gardens, actively tended by gardeners with
varying skills and planting interests. Those bpioneersb grubbed out the
field, put up fences and moved rocks before the pattern of beds was
Presently, there are 27 gardens down the hill, with a fence and gate,
woodchipped paths and a number of continuing gardeners who have been assigned
the same plots that they have improved over the nine years in the new
Soil preparation is up to each gardener. Maintenance of paths, the fence and
the compost pile are the responsibility of everyone involved.
The charge for each bed is $25. If a bed is not started by June 10 or is not
maintained when checked on July 4, the plot will be given to the next person
on the waiting list or to someone who has asked for a second plot.
Rules for the garden are explained when the beds are assigned, are mailed to
each gardener and are posted on a bulletin board. A key or the entrance gate
is $2 and will be made available to the new gardeners.
To request a plot or to confirm an already assigned plot, call Edith Meffley
at 438-6108.
