KLT Community Gardens to open in May

Advertisement

KENT—The Kent Land Trust, which sponsors Kent’s Community Garden, plans to open the plots in May this year. The garden is located in the field east of Kent Center School, behind Kent Greenhouse & Gardens.

Plots, each approximately 4-feet-by-10-feet, are $30,  with additional plots at $15 each. The garden is managed using sustainable practices and is pesticide- and herbicide-free. Water is centrally located and available to all gardeners. Kent Greenhouse supplies the water and expects to turn it on mid-April, weather permitting. It is turned off in mid-autumn.

Gardeners include individuals, neighbors or friends sharing plots, communally tended plots for the benefit of the Kent Food Bank, Scouts, church organizations and schoolchildren. KLT also has a multi-level raised bed to make gardening accessible to those who are unable to garden at ground-level. Those interested, should contact KLT.

Every effort is made to return continuing members to their previously occupied plots if they wish. Returning members should contact KLT so that it can do its best to accommodate all special requests.

Volunteer help and participation is always welcome for maintenance such as mowing. Volunteers can also garden a plot, the produce from which is donated to the Kent Food Bank. To get involved, contact Gwynne Seufert atgwynne.seufert@kentlandtrust.org or call 860-488-9185.

Gardeners are asked to avoid Kent Center School property while school is in session. If financial assistance is needed, ask. Free and reduced-price plots may be available.
