Community Gardens

Marshfield's Growing Together Community Garden committee is thrilled to see the 2011 growing season off to a great start. The committee is excited about the addition of the third community garden site at 
St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, which includes 24 raised beds. The new site is a collaboration between St. Alban's and Lincoln Elementary School . Staff, students and their families have a vested interest in this community garden site. The first site was established in 2009 at First Presbyterian Church with 36 raised beds and the second site was established in 2010 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church with 20 raised beds. Each site allows many new gardeners to enjoy growing their own vegetables using the square foot gardening technique. We are proud to have a total of 80 beds between our three community gardens.
