The Charlestown Community Garden – A Sustainable Hunger Solution is a 9,500 square foot, all-enclosed garden located at the Community/Senior Center in Ninigret Park. This new volunteer-driven garden is the brainchild of Eagle Scout candidate Christopher Hacunda in collaboration with Jay Primiano, our Director of Parks and Recreation. Mr. Hacunda and Mr. Primiano have been garnering local donations from area businesses and community members as well as encouraging volunteer groups to assist with the project.
The following work has been accomplished so far:
- Raised bed is ready for planting,
- Ground based beds are ready for planting
- Deer fence installed
- Rabbit fencing buried and installed
Now they need your help to get plants and trees into the ground!
Come to the Community Garden next to the Community/Senior Center in Ninigret Park any time between 10 am and 3 pm on Sunday June 5th to help out.
