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 grounds on Route 103, at the border between Ludlow and Proctorsville. UVM Extension master gardeners and master composters are available to assist gardeners. To sign up and reserve a plot, come to our meeting Monday, April 22, at 7 p.m. at United Church of Ludlow or call any of the members listed.
Individual plots are used to grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Shared plots are for asparagus, rhubarb, and a mini-orchard with berries, apples, peaches, and native plums. Waist-high raised beds are available.
A separate enclosed area is dedicated to food scrap composting. This is an educational project made possible through a Grow Grant from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund and support from Composting Association of Vermont, Vermont Community Garden Network, and UVM Extension Master Gardener Program.
The fee includes the use of garden tools, hoses, tiller, carts, water, compost, and other materials. Scholarship plots are available upon request. For more information, call Fran Webb at 802-875-2064; Bob Kottkamp, 802-228-6282; Gary MacIntyre, 802-228-7178; or Rosa Donohue 802-228-7496.
