Providing members with the space and resources to grow their own food while fostering a sense of community and celebration in their labor and product.

In 2014, we set aside a 1/2 acre space on the farm to be turned into a Community Garden. Students from the High School drew up plans, and volunteers came out to help us dig pathways and beds. Each year we fill out more space in the garden with additional members renting space, the Edgartown School growing potatoes and Island Grown School's teen apprentice program growing their own crops.

Garden beds are priced & sized

$50 for 5' x 20', $75 for 10' x 20' & $100 for 20' x 20'

We don't want the garden to be cost prohibitive, please be in touch if you'd like assistance or an alternative payment option.

Shared, community garden owned tools and materials

Educational resources and support by the community garden coordinator

This is a welcoming, encouraging space that is available to all community members, regardless of their growing experience or capabilities. The community garden works to accomplish the larger goals of Island Grown by providing the necessary resources for food cultivation, educating community members around topics in agriculture, and offering a community gathering space in which community members are able to learn from each other and share in their successes and challenges as food growers.

In the 2017 growing season, we plan to add workshops, skill shares and community celebrations to the space.
