The Fairhaven Community Garden is located in Fairhaven, MA. Now in its fifth year, the garden was created to offer residents an opportunity to garden organically in a community setting. It is managed by the gardeners under the direction of the Fairhaven Community Garden Committee, a sub-committee of the Town of Fairhaven Sustainability Committee.
For 2013, the garden will be located at the Hastings Middle School.
Eighteen beds were created at this site in 2012, each measuring 8' x
4'. All gardeners contribute to the overall management of
the garden as well as cultivate their individual beds. Community work
days are periodically scheduled throughout the spring, summer and fall.
First year gardeners are initially offered one bed; returning gardeners
may garden two beds if there are enough beds available.
Formerly on the grounds of the Leroy Wood Elementary School, the garden comprised 36 garden beds. That site is closed while construction of the new school proceeds. Once completed, a new garden will constructed to provide students from the Leroy Wood School and residents of Fairhaven additional opportunities to garden organically.
