Community garden plots available in Marlborough

Marlborough – Following its second successful year, Cider Knoll, the City of Marlborough’s organic community garden, is accepting new gardeners for available plots. Interested residents should plan to attend a meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at the Richer School cafeteria, 80 Foley Road, to learn more about the garden and to sign up for a garden plot.

The garden is located at the Cider Knoll/Mello Family Meadow conservation land, next to the small parking lot on Stow Road. The 42-plot garden has full-size plots, approximately 10’ x 20’, and half size plots, approximately 10’ x 10’. The rental fee is $25 per season per full plot and $15 per season for a half plot and covers the cost of a garden plot and water. There is plenty of free parking at the site. Garden plots will be open for planting starting April 15, weather permitting.

Spaces are assigned to returning gardeners first and on a lottery basis for the remaining plots.  A little more than half the gardeners from last year are returning so there are about 15 plots still available for this years’ planting season.

If you cannot attend the meeting but are interested, contact Priscilla Ryder of the Conservation Commission at 508-460-3768 or pryder@marlborough-ma.gov.
