The Margaret Ellis Community Garden, located at the Morris Farm Trust in Wiscasset, is now accepting applications for garden plots for the 2017 Growing Season.  Garden Plots are 10’by 20’, and cost $45 for a season rental.

 2017 marks the seventh season of community gardening at the Morris Farm.  Community gardening offers opportunities for growing tasty and nutritious produce, developing community identity, ownership, stewardship, lowering food bills, meeting new neighbors and forming new friendships, as well as the opportunity to get your hands a little dirty.

 An excellent solution for those whose home yards do not offer adequate space, sunlight or soil for gardening, the Margaret Ellis community Garden plots are available to all residents of Lincoln and Sagadahoc counties.  The more than 20 plots available include a common plot where vegetables are grown for sale at the Morris Farm Store, as well as donations to area food banks.

 Applications may be requested by calling 207-380-7154.  Applications may also be picked up at the Morris Farm office.
