History

The HdG Green Team started the Community Garden Initiative in 2012 with one pilot garden, located at Market Street 1, and expanded to three more sites in 2013 at Market St. 2, Seneca Avenue, and the Old Reservoir, thereby providing convenient access to garden plots throughout the city and community of Havre de Grace. The Community Gardens provide wonderful opportunity for people who might not have access to a gardening spot at their home. The gardens are great places to make new friends and share growing tips and recipes.

Apply

To become a community gardener requires only a small annual fee for a 10’ x 10’ plot (with a maximum of two plots per gardener) and sharing in common tasks with other gardeners at their site. Each gardener decides what to plant and can make raised beds or other improvements to their plot. Water is available from large tanks at each site. Gardeners agree to abide by a set of common-sense rules established for all the gardens, as stated in the Green Team garden application form 2020 (pdf).

Oversight

Oversight of the Community Gardens is provided by a site leader for each garden.  In addition, a garden committee comprised of the four garden site leaders, a second representative from each garden, and the community garden chair is responsible for budgeting, marketing, and policy matters, as well as providing general leadership to their respective gardens.

Supporters

In addition to the efforts of volunteer gardeners, the gardens are made possible by the generous support of other organizations and individuals, which to date have included:

The community gardeners have held garden parties to formally recognize our supporters.
