The next Community Garden planning meeting: Tuesday July 17 at 6:30 pm. Ayer Library. Join our enthusiastic group as we move forward with plans.
A small group of residents have come together to establish a community garden in Ayer. We are actively in the process of working with town officials and those in the private sector to make this dream a reality, but we need your help! In addition to organizing regular meetings to share ideas and information and exchanging e-mails, we have created the Ayer Community Garden Group on Facebook. We encourage interested residents of Ayer to join us in realizing the vision of an ever thriving and happy, healthy community.
For those not familiar, a community garden is a shared space where residents secure individual plots in which to grow plants of their choice. Resources such as water, tools, and others are shared, as well as responsibilities for maintaining the shared space. Community gardens have been of great benefit to cities and towns in Massachusetts and beyond. They provide families with affordable access to fresh food, offer enriching experiences for children to learn healthy habits, and foster pride in the community.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to working together!
