WRJ Community Garden

The WRJ Community Garden aims to be a nurturing place for individuals and families regardless of age, race, class, gender, and ability. It is a place where the community can grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The CG supports Community Food Security by teaching and demonstrating organic, ecological and sustainable growing methods and by donating food from the garden to those in need.

The WRJ Community Garden is a collaborative project of the Upper Valley Food Co-op and Hartford Parks & Rec Dept.

We are now taking reservations for plot rentals. Connect with Chris. Call 802-295-5804 or email chris@uppervalleyfood.coop

Are you a Co-op member? Would you like to volunteer in the community garden and earn a discount at the store? Call us!
