The garden is located on Old Route 109, off Route 25, to the side of the Lions Club. The plots receive full sunshine, and thanks to a newly installed irrigation cistern, water will be available close to the garden.
The garden is “a self-sustaining resource exclusively available to help our permanent or seasonal residents, especially seniors, get more involved in the community. From working in the garden alongside friends and neighbors to donating home-grown vegetables to local hunger relief agencies, how you choose to ‘dig in’ is up to you,” according to the garden’s mission statement.
Students at Moultonborough Academy pitched in by creating the nameplates for garden renters. Alyssa McCarthy, who is working on the garden as part of a Girl Scout project, has created graphics, posters and flyers to get the word out to the public about the garden.
Plots are a still available to town and seasonal residents. Applications are available at town hall or at moultonboroughnh.gov.
