GARDEN WITHOUT THE YARD
The Windsor Garden Club created and manages the Windsor Town Green Community Garden in cooperation with the Town of Windsor. You'll find it at Windsor Road and Joe Rodota Drive just off the Town Green.
The community garden started as an idea in 2009. Our first planting was in May 2010. The garden offers raised beds in a variety of sizes for a nominal annual rental fee. Anyone living in the Town of Windsor can apply to rent a garden bed in exchange for the bed rental fee plus six hours per year of volunteer time maintaining the garden common areas.
Gardeners also pledge to use only certified organic fertilizers and pest control methods. Thanks to our sponsors, community gardeners, WGC members and friends, this beautiful spot now features:
Drip-irrigation systems in all beds
Wheelchair-accesible raised beds, waist high and back friendly
Common areas, chairs and picnic tables
A compost project
