Fairfield’s Community Garden at Drew Park Holds Open Garden & Harvest Day

Fairfield’s Community Garden at Drew Park will have an Open Garden/Harvest Day on October 30, 2010 from 9:00am until 3:00pm. Gardeners will be available to answer questions about their gardens and talk about what types and varieties of vegetables were grown in the various gardens this year.

Children can help collect potatoes and sweet potatoes that will be dug up during the day to be donated to the Food Pantry at Operation Hope. Demonstration gardens include beginning garden types (square foot and “lasagna” gardens) and fall gardens with lettuce, broccoli raabe, spinach and kale.

The Community Garden at Drew Park is located at 196 Warde Terrace directly across from Parish Court Housing Complex.

  1. Hi, I am wondering about a community garden space for this spring/summer. This year could be the perfect one to grow a garden and further connect with community. Please advise – how to sign on to share some garden space in Fairfield or west of town.
    Sincerely,
    Connie

    • Connie, Fairfield has a wonderful community garden at Drew Park on Warde Terrace. Contact Tree Warden Ken Placko at 203-256-3177 for a free plot. Good luck!
