Three members have already joined for the current season in addition to the 17 members that joined last year. However, there will be more plots available.
The garden is a joint effort between the Tutorial Center, Manchester Elementary and Middle School, Transition Town Manchester and the Town of Manchester.
Last year the Youth Agriculture Project cultivated a third acre of produce and flowers donating hundreds of pounds of vegetables to Meals on Wheels.
The Manchester Community & Educational Garden is also looking for high school students (who need community service credit) to work in the garden this year.

There is a work day scheduled for May 4 (May 10 rain date). Those interested are encouraged to visit and find out more about the garden.
A plot at the garden located at the Manchester Recreation Area includes a 20x20 area. The cost is minimal.
Those interested in the garden or the Youth Agriculture Project should contact: Hilary Batchelor, The Manchester Community & Education Garden Coordinator at 802-824 4565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
