Attleboro Area Community Garden

Overview

The Attleboro Area Community Garden is a joint endeavor of the City of Attleboro and the Attleboro Land Trust.  The recently-upgraded garden consists of 62 separate plots, including 8 with enhanced access.  A $20 donation is requested. The plots are made available to local residents each year on a first-come, first-served basis.  Gardeners are required to use organic methods, which means no pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

The Attleboro Land Trust manages the garden on land provided by the City of Attleboro, which provides support services including provision of water and compost.  Local merchants have also donated supplies.

According to Mark Pechenik, founder of the garden,

"The Attleboro Area Community Garden enables people from all walks of life to join together in the simple but community-building hobby of gardening.  We cordially invite those who share this same civic spirit to join us as community gardeners."

A Facebook page for gardeners has been created here.
