2010 Growing Season Kickoff Meeting!


Yes, it is that time of year again, the Thompsonville Community Garden is gearing up for the 2010 growing season! To kick off the 2010 season we will be holding our annual planning meeting on Thursday April 1st, 2010 at 6pm in the Enfield Room of Enfield Town Hall.

News and Notes

  • Marty and Trish from the UCONN Master Gardner Program will be helping us again this year providing training and tips to help us become better gardeners.

  • Michelle Barboza has graciously volunteered to by the Thompsonville Community Garden Treasurer for the 2010 season, Thanks Michelle!

  • For the 2010 season there will be a $20 fee associated with having a plot. This fee is needed to cover costs including paying our water bill, buying supplies and plants, and creating a reserve fund for future large projects. Last season the average tomato plant produced over 40 dollars in tomatoes alone. Your 20 dollar fee will produce ten times its value in vegetables in your plot. Payment plans are available for those interested.

If you are still interested in your plot please let us know ASAP. As with previous years we have a growing wait list and we would like to get as many as those people plots as possible.

We look forward to seeing you on April 1st at 6pm in the Enfield Room of Enfield Town Hall. This is our community garden and the only way to make it grow and succeed is with your input and help.
