Can you dig it? Gate City Community Gardens

There’s still a little under a week left for applications for the 2020 Gate City Community Gardens, which is gearing up for spring.
March 1st is the deadline for submission.

Great American Downtown and its volunteers have expanded the available raised beds, and they’re ready for you and your family! Tend your own vegetables, create a beautiful flower tableau, or assist everyone with a pollinator garden – the choice is yours!

The benefits of gardening are myriad – to the gardener and to the surrounding environment. Be part of that life cycle!

Ways to get involved

Become a bed gardener:
Fill out the 2020 application and get it to us by Sunday, March 1st.

Don’t miss “Gardening in Small Spaces/ Annual Seed Swap” at the Nashua Public Library on Thursday, Feb. 27.  Jodie Gilson of Gilson Greenhouses will present a demonstration on container, raised-bed, vertical, and row-covering gardening. Learn to pick the right plants and seeds, how and when to start seeds and root cuttings for your garden type, and seed-saving techniques.

The annual seed swap will follow the talk. Whether they are seeds you’ve saved or purchased, bring each variety in its own jar or bag, labeled with its name and growing instructions. If you don’t have seeds to share, come anyway and take some home so you can share next year. The seed swap is coordinated by the Nashua Garden Club.
