The Bolton Community Garden has a few plots available starting in April 2016, and March is the time to sign up to claim one for this year’s growing season. The garden consists of twenty 15-by-22-foot plots, and is located off Route 117, just east of the center of town.

The Bolton Community Garden was started in 2009 with a mission to provide a place for people to grow fresh produce, promote a community gathering place, provide education on sustainable farming, increase general food security, and widen ecological awareness and protection of our natural resources.

Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a novice, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from others, as well as to swap ideas, seedlings, seeds and produce if you wish. All Bolton residents and employees welcome. For more information on the garden location and guidelines, visit to or call Dave at 978-779-5422. You can also email the garden at
