The 2022 New Gardener sign up event will be on Saturday, March 19th from 9:00AM – 11:00AM at the Northampton Parks and Recreation Department, 100A Bridge Rd, Florence, MA. If you are able to print and bring a completed New Gardener Registration Form with you, it will save time.
Each plot at the Garden is roughly 20 x 20 feet and first-year gardeners are limited to a single plot. The plot fee is $25, with a $10 discount on a single plot for those 65+ and low-income scholarships available.
The Garden furnishes water (there are 12 outlets distributed throughout the garden, with attached hoses), and community tools (spades, shovels, rakes, hoes, etc.). Rock dust and wood chips are also available to gardeners without charge.
