Wayland Community Gardens

My garden is too shady to grow veggies: I want to register for a Wayland Community Garden Plot

About this Action

Grow your own veggies, flowers, gardening skills in the company of many beginners and experts alike in a field with great sun, great soil!

Garden plots are approximately 20 feet by 30 feet. The garden is divided into tilled and non-tilled areas. The tilled areas are tilled by the Conservation Commission in the spring. In the non-tilled areas the individual gardeners must perform or arrange for their own tilling. Having a non-tilled plot eliminates the burden of erecting and removing fences each year, and permits greater flexibility in gardening practices. However, there is a need to police materials in non-tilled plots as well. Please do not use plastics, plastic mulch, or other non biodegradable materials.

Water is available at several faucets around the garden (hoses are not permitted). Hay bales are provided to gardeners who wish to purchase, but there is a limit of two bales per plot being rented.

Plots are available to non-Wayland residents on the same basis as residents. All applicants must submit an application form which includes signing a release and a commitment that the rules will be obeyed.
