Plots available for community garden

Thirty plots are available for residents to grow vegetables and plants at the EMC Park community garden created by high school student Max Vumbaca for his Eagle Scout service project. The 10-by-10-foot plots are available for $30 a year. Water is provided at the site, and a deer fence is in place. The community garden also contains a large space for volunteers to grow vegetables for Project Just Because to provide fresh produce for families using the food pantry. The garden will be open from dawn until dusk. A plot map of the garden and more information is available at the town’s Parks and Recreation Department page at www.hopkinton.org. Ellen Ishkanian
