Saco Community Garden
A Community Project that will provide affordable garden plots, utilize organic gardening practices and promote a “growing” garden community.

We welcome other interested gardeners and local businesses to participate in supporting this project that will provide food for our neighbors' tables as well as an enriching network of people who work to help themselves.

OUR MISSION
The Saco Community Garden's Mission is to create a garden following organic practices, provide affordable garden plots for growing healthy food and flowers, support a community of gardeners and promote a green and sustainable Saco.

How You Can Help: Steps to Making the Saco Community Garden Happen
  • Join the SCG to lend your ideas and volunteer your skills
  • Spread the word to potential gardeners and supporters
  • Help develop a website
  • Donate tools, soil amendments and other supplies
  • Volunteer to till, turn and weed to start the garden beds
There are going to be many exciting opportunities as this project moves forward. Your time, talent and opinion are welcome.

The first major goal of the SCG is to establish a site for rental garden plots for the spring of 2010. Before the first plot is dug and planted, a suitable piece of land, gardening materials and organizational plans need to be chosen. SCG plans to create a 10 feet by 10 feet demonstration vegetable garden this year as a model for the future.
