The community garden is in the Tree Streets neighborhood area of Nashua within short walking distance to the Downtown city amenities. The intent of the community garden is to increase the amount of green space in the area and to provide an opportunity for residents to have a garden close to their home. The community garden is a huge asset to the community and is placed purposefully on this very busy rail trail through the center of the city. One cannot be at the community garden without passerbys commenting on how beautiful the garden has become, or how happy they are that it is there. There is a minimum of 3 Work Days each growing season, where gardeners, groups, and/or the public can volunteer to clean up the trail and work on projects at the garden. Please come out and join us!
If you are interested in gardening at the Heritage Rail Trail Community Garden, applications are ready in January each year. Priority is given to previous gardeners and proximity to the garden, but anyone is welcome to apply. Please be sure to read the Gate City Community Garden Agreement prior to submitting your application.
