Earlier this spring our church offered some of it’s property to the town of Barkhamsted to create Community Garden spaces. Over a couple of months time, several raised beds were created and offered to the public for a small “rental” fee. The town provided the beds, the soil, the water using large tanks filled by the local fire department, and maintenance of the grounds. As the beds were claimed and planted, we all watched as the plants grew and were carefully tended. Here are some pictures from the early days in the garden and others show the growth of the gardens by mid-summer. They are all producing well and looking almost ready for harvest!
