The Killdeer have been running around the garden lately! It’s great entertainment, but please give them space. To learn more, click here.
Beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, and squash typically see a lot of pests at the Garden. None of these plants are “banned” from the garden, but do be aware that they may not be as fruitful as you hope.
If you have structures in your plot, please orient them East to West to minimize the shading of your neighbors
Do not plant tall sunflowers
Check this list from Maine.gov for plants not allowed at the garden
If you use crop cover, please make sure to secure the sides and ends well so that birds don’t get tangled in it
For plot you have, you are required 6 hours of volunteer work at the garden. If you need a task, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To log your hours, click here.
