Moultonboro Community Garden Plotters

May 12, the Moultonboro Community Garden Plotters gather for a pre-planting meeting to prepare for the Saturday May 24 opening of the planting season. The committee
has been preparing the soil with proper nutrient treatments, tilling the soil, setting the fence in place, the name stakes, pathways as well as a pump well for water. John Welton, Manager of the Community School Farm in South Tamworth gave a talk and showed several varieties of plants that are available for sale at the Community School Farm and explained soil needs to best produce health strong plants.  Olivia Saunders of UNH also spoke of the soil sample taken from the garden area and the best ways to enhance the nutrients into the soil. Over 30 plotters were eager to begin their growing season knowing that the 30 X 20 garden plots will be yielding fresh vegetables in short time.

Mission Statement:

 
The Moultonborough Community Garden, located at the Lions Club on Old Route 109, is a self-sustaining resource exclusively available to help our permanent or seasonal residents, especially seniors, get more involved in the community.  From working in the garden alongside friends and neighbors to donating home-grown vegetables to our local hunger-relief agencies, how you choose to "dig-in" is up to you!

Benefits:
  • Cultivate and distribute nutritious, inexpensive, and delicious food to your family, friends and, if you so kindly choose, to food banks such as "Meals on Wheels" and "Senior Lunch Program".
  • Get physical activity and work with your hands.
  • Enjoy time outdoors with your family, friends and neighbors.
  • Live more sustainably by eating primarily organic and locally grown produce.
  • Any resident of Moultonborough or tax payers of Moultonborough may rent a 30 X 20 plot and plant all the vegetables you can harvest come fall.

   Nothing like having your own freshly grown veggies and flowers.
