Reserve your community garden plot in Barrington

Registration taking place throughout March

Posted

The gray of winter will soon be replaced with the green of spring.

That means Barrington residents may want to start thinking about registering for a plot in the community garden.

The Barrington Community Garden is located off the Wampanoag Trail, just over the town line with East Providence. It offers 60 plots, each one is 5-feet, by 20-feet. There is a community herb garden for lessees to snip and use the herbs as needed, a pergola for shade, organic compost for soil enrichment, and water supplied through a solar-operated pump.

Officials with the Barrington Community Garden will hold plot registration from March 1 to 15 for those who leased a plot in 2020. For newcomers, the registration period runs March 16 to 31. Registration packets can be found on the website, www.barringtoncommunitygarden.org.

Last year was a banner year for the Barrington Community Garden — there was a record number of new residents leasing a plot.

“We're hoping for the same this year and that all 60 plots can be leased to Barrington residents,” added Bonnie Grassie-Hughes of the Barrington Community Garden.

Plots are available to lease for $25 during the 2021 season. Payment must be made by check imprinted with a Barrington address. Completed forms and payment can be dropped off at Barrington Town Hall or mailed to Barrington Community Garden, c/o Cyndee Fuller, Barrington Town Hall, 283 County Road, Barrington, RI 02806.
