Save the date! On Saturday, March 26th at 10 AM the Walpole Community Garden will be hosting those interested in knowing more about this jewel of the community. Join us at the Hooper Institute, 165 Prospect Hill Rd, across from the golf course.
Perhaps you are new to gardening or to organic gardening? Perhaps you are downsizing from a large garden and would prefer a smaller plot? Perhaps you are an ambitious gardener who needs a bit more space? All gardening levels are welcome. Our membership has a diverse background of growing experiences. We love to share what we’ve learned with others and would love to learn what you have to share. Perhaps this is the year for you to participate in this really fun and satisfying pursuit?
Come to tour our peaceful garden site, overlooking the Hooper Institute meadow and pond. Learn about our unique “no till” organic practices that continuously improve the garden soil and tilth. See the heirloom apple orchard with its supportive plant guilds. Understand the expectations for membership, as there are communal chores that help the plants thrive. Plan to bring lots of questions for our veteran gardeners.
New member sign-ups will take place at the Community Garden meeting. We look forward to seeing your there! Membership dues are $20 per family.
If you have any questions, please call the Hooper Institute at 756-4382 or e-mail us at HOOPERINSTITUTE@myfairpoint.net.
