What is a "community garden"?
A community garden is a place where residents and non-residents may rent a 10 foot by 10 foot or 10 foot by 20 foot plot of land for a nominal fee to grow their own vegetables, flowers, and herbs. In addition to the work on their individual plot the renter agrees to spend a minimum of six (6) or twelve (12) hours, depending on the size of the plot, during the growing season to work in the area of the garden designated as 'the community plot' where vegetables, flowers, and herbs are grown for distribution to low income, fixed income, and physically impaired residents of our community. The Kennebunk Community Garden is a strictly organic garden area meaning that no chemical pesticides or herbicides may be use. We have a list of products that can be used and cannot be used. The list is available in printed format and also on our website.Chemical Product List
