LUDLOW, Vt. – The Ludlow Area Community Garden is open to all residents of Ludlow and neighboring towns. The fenced garden is located in the Fletcher Farm on Route 103, at the border between Ludlow and Proctorsville. UVM Extension Master Gardeners are available to assist gardeners. To sign up and reserve a plot, come to one of our next two meetings on Wednesday, April 18 at noon and at 7 p.m. at United Church of Ludlow. Please use entrance on back by Elm St. parking area.
Individual 10-foot by 10-foot plots are used to grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Shared plots are used for growing asparagus, rhubarb, and a mini-orchard. The shared plots require less labor per person and are open to all gardeners. Waist-high raised beds are available.
There is a separate enclosed area dedicated to food scrap composting. This is an educational project made possible through a Grow Grant from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund and the support from the Composting Association of Vermont, the Vermont Community Garden Network, and UVM Extension Master Gardener Program.
The annual plot fee includes the use of many garden tools, hoses, tiller, carts, water for irrigation, compost, and other materials. Scholarship plots are available upon request.
