The Community Garden Committee’s role is a simple one:
To create community gardening opportunities for the residents of Franklin!
Community gardens provide fresh produce and plants, improve our neighborhoods, and allow us to actively connect with the environment. Most importantly, community gardens create ample opportunities for recreation, exercise, and education.
The Community Garden Committee seeks to create welcoming organic gardens where residents may grow healthy food, share knowledge, nurture relationships, create beauty, and have fun!
Partnering with the Town of Franklin, the Recreation Department and the nonprofit Friends of Franklin Community Gardens, your Community Garden Committee will:
- Identify appropriate locations
- Coordinate design and construction of new gardens
- Develop and enforce rules and regulations for the gardens
- Oversee the plot lottery, gardener registration and plot distribution
If you are interested in serving on the committee, please contact any committee member or visit the Town Clerk’s office.
