Community Gardens Landscape 
Get rooted in Stratford Community Gardens!

The Stratford Community Gardens first opened in 2013 thanks to a partnership between the Town of Stratford and the Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group and funding from Wal-Mart Evergreen Fund.  In 2017, the gardens were expanded to include an additional 30 plots due to the high demand from residents for more plots. Beets

Today, the gardens have 71 various-sized plots available to residents and community organizations. The sizes are as follows:

6 x 12 feet ($25/season)
4 x 12 feet raised beds ($25/season)
10 x 17 feet ($35/season)
10 x 12 feet with attached kid plot ($35/season)
10 x 40 feet – these plots are reserved for community organizations. Please contact the Town or watershed group if you are interested in renting one for a local organization.

We now run at full capacity each year, but don’t be discouraged! We keep a waiting list for those who are interested in having a plot and we do our best to try and accommodate anyone who wants to garden.

No previous knowledge or equipment is required to rent a plot.  All the tools that you will need (water, wheelbarrow, rake, hand tools, etc.) are provided with your registration and made available to you at the Community Gardens.

The season runs from May 15th to November 15th each year.  Plots are allocated beginning in March.
