The newest site for the Maplewood Community Garden has been built, and is now ready for those summer vegetables!
Building on the success of last year, the Maplewood Community Garden — which had its start in more than two dozen plots behind Town Hall last year — has expanded to a new site behind the Maplewood Volunteer First Aid Squad building on Boyden Avenue.
There are 21 new plots with 25 families taking part in the garden’s newest patch. The plots were built over the course of a two weekends starting on April 30. The work crews were made up of the gardeners receiving plots at the new site, as well as members from the original Town Hall site.
