  • Community Gardening in NH | Conservation New Hampshire
    garden there exist variations ranging from community gardens run by school classes such as that of the Rye Junior High School to gardens run by churches such as the Unitarian Universalist Church Adopt a Plot garden in Concord Canterbury Shaker Village s garden though not available for public use provides a particularly unique educational look into an even more utopian method of gardening which involved each member of the Shaker community contributing to the maintenance and upkeep on the entire plot The broad range of foods medicinal herbs clothing dyes and ornamental plants grown in the garden were then distributed amongst the entire group Another noteworthy example is the Sycamore Field Community Garden in Concord which combines intelligent social and cultural outreach as well as general garden aesthetics Having worked with refugees in various gardens Cheryl Bourassa and Cathy Chesley the Director of Immigration and Refugee Services for New Hampshire Catholic Charities began brainstorming ideas to create a gardening system that would benefit refugees with low incomes With the help of the New Hampshire Technical Institute NHTI and the Concord Monitor their ideas culminated in the creation of the Sycamore Garden The garden is located on land owned by NHTI and with a few exceptions the plots are distributed to low income refugees and their families who then work on the plots and keep the food that they produce The plots cost 10 a fee often covered by donations Similarly to the Hopkinton Community Garden all of the funds go towards garden products such as compost and wheelbarrrows The idea is that a refugee who might not be able to afford grocery store food can invest 10 into a plot and proceed to grow food whose value well exceeds 10 all while establishing a sense of community for them and their families The program has been a success continually growing as refugees from countries such as Bhutan Iraq Somalia the Democratic Republic of Congo and Berundi take advantage of this opportunity In the near future Bourassa the Sycamore Garden coordinator hopes to create a farmer s market where refugees can sell the produce that they or their families do not use Bourassa encourages people to stop by and observe what she described as the U N of gardening a playful moniker meant to underscore the broad diversity and variations of gardens found at Sycamore Given the conveniences of modern life in many ways we as a race have lost touch with some of the basic tenets of our society Community gardening is a fairly painless but important step in reconnecting with the origins of not only our food but also our communities It is also an environmentally and economically sound alternative to the large scale farming practices of corporations that can exhaust the land and introduce harmful pesticides and fertilizers into the environment as evidenced by the Gulf of Mexico s Dead Zone The gardens listed above are but a few examples state and nationwide and as cliché as it
