Harpswell Community Garden

Would you like to grow vegetables but lack enough space or sunlight? Would you like to be part of a community of gardeners? At Harpswell Community Garden you’ll find this and more. 
The Community Garden is located within Mitchell Field off Route 123. We're an organic garden in a beautiful setting and plenty of sunshine.  
We offer 25 plots for rent by individuals, families and groups to organically grow their own food and flowers. Residents of Harpswell are given priority but plots may be rented to non-residents, depending on availability. Part of our garden is a volunteer-tended 'Common Garden,' where produce is grown and donated locally to help feed those in need.
The garden has a solar-powered well, water spigots placed throughout the plot area, a storage shed with communal tools, on-site composting, and reinforced fencing to reduce the entry of foraging animals. Gardeners may keep the same plot from year to year, and high quality compost is usually available for top dressing. Families are welcomed; picnic tables, a play area with climbing frame and sandbox will keep younger or non-gardening kids busy. There are also communal herb beds, asparagus mounds, and selected other produce for our gardeners to share. 

Harpswell Community Garden is a Town of Harpswell Recreation program and receives key financial support from the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust.
