Esty Street Garden
Hungry? Grow your own food with your community!
The goal of the Esty Street Garden is to fight food insecurity through community engagement in growing food and to provide garden-based learning. We provide the space and the support for those in need to learn to grow their own food. These gardens are designed to serve as community spaces and to teach about gardening, share recipes, share tools and techniques, and provide garden-fresh produce for local food pantries and Loaves & Fishes Community Kitchen.
The Esty Street Garden is located behind CFCU Community Credit Union’s branch on Esty St. and N. Meadow ST. (Route 13).
