  2. Enfield Library Community Garden (104 Middle Road) 
  3. Lafayette Park Community Garden (Hartford Avenue)

  5. Enfield Memorial Park Community Garden (1010 Enfield St, former Alcorn School)

Lamagna gardens will not be available

Additional beds coming to the Library location!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Approximately 10 to 49 garden beds will be communal beds at the above community garden locations to be tended by members or to be made available to families in need through Loaves and Fishes.

Raised garden beds will be filled with new garden soil.  All tools in the shed, directions and information will be provided.  To get you started with a bed rental, please review the Rules and Procedures and sign the attached Bed Rental Agreement and Waiver of Liability.  Please note which community garden you want to rent.

The summer rental fee is only $25.00 for each raised garden bed.  This rental fee includes use of tools, seeds, starter plants, compost, water, educational sessions, and videos, and a caring community.  This is truly an amazing opportunity.

Mail your garden bed lease agreement and a check or money order (make check payable to Town of Enfield - Community Garden Plot) to:  Enfield Community Garden-Lease Agreement, Laurie Whitten, Director, Development Services, Town of Enfield, 820 Enfield Street, Enfield, CT 06082 or bring you garden bed lease agreement and a check or money order to Development Services at the Town Hall.
