Located in New London County, Salem Community Garden was first introduced in 2009. Home to almost 20 plots, the garden is open to residents and has attracted community groups like the Girl (and Boy) Scouts and members of the Mom’s Club. Volunteers in the garden range in age from school children to senior citizens. The fire department installed the water tank and the Lions Club helped start the garden. Each plotholder takes a turn mowing the area and participates in a community day. Talk about a community working together!!
Those involved have put together a nice blog to follow along with the progress all year. There’s even a nice story of a 10-year old girl named Carley who maintained her own plot!
As of Feb. 27th, there were still 2 plots available so be sure to visit the website and find out how you can reserve one! You can visit the site here - http://salemgarden.wordpress.com/
