NOW GROW YOUR OWN VEGETABLES IN SALISBURY’S COMMUNITY GARDEN!

gardenSpearheaded by board member Peggy O’Brien and designed by local architect Mac Gordon, the Hewat Community Garden, established in 2013 by Salisbury Family Services, is located in front of the SFS offices at 30A Salmon Kill Road in Salisbury.

We are an enthusiastic group of families and individuals who share upkeep responsibilities and helpful tips on what to plant and how to make our 38 plots productive.

The Town of Salisbury provides a renewable source of milfoil, harvested from our lakes, as excellent fertilizer and/or mulch for our soil needs. We often receive donations of seedlings from local farmers for planting after Memorial Day and there is at least one plot cultivated every year for the benefit of The Corner Food Pantry. Use of chemicals and materials that are not safe for organic growing is prohibited.
