Belchertown Community Garden


Belchertown’s Best Kept Secret

The Belchertown Community Gardens had a record number of gardeners for the 2016 season with xxx gardeners tending their plots at the beautiful and fertile acre on the property of Lampson Brook Farm at 275 Jackson Street.

Under the guidance of the New England Small Farm Institute which leases the farm land of the former Belchertown State School from the state, 15’ x 20’ prepared plots are available to bother Belchertown residents non-residents for a small fee. The garden fee includes free compost, the use of shared tools in a well-organized tool shed, convenient access to water, a restroom, and parking space as well as the camaraderie and wisdom of your gardening neighbors. A library of periodicals and books specifically for the “home” gardener is also available in the big yellow barn adjacent to the gardens.

Both beginner and experienced gardeners are welcome. Depending on the weather, the opening of the garden will be at the beginning of May.

Registration for the 2017 season will open in early spring.
