Northampton Community Garden

New Gardener Registration

The 2023 New Gardener sign up event will be on Saturday, March 18th from 9:00AM – 12:00PM 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.). Wood chips are also available to gardeners without charge.
