Middletown Library Community Garden

700 West Main Road | Middletown, RI 02842

Project Leader: Casey Farley caseyfar@gmail.com

URI Master Gardeners serve as mentors to the approximately 30 community gardeners at this location. Gardeners each rent a raised bed for the growing season and are expected to participate in monthly 2-hour sessions (either on a Saturday morning or Thursday evening) led by Master Gardeners, where weeding, composting and other garden needs are addressed.

In six years, the MLCG has become a second home to the family of gardeners. Together they share seeds, tips and ideas for better vegetable yields. In addition, the MLCG has a handful of shared beds for extra plants, asparagus, garlic and a rotating potato growing area.
