Greenwich Community Gardens is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating and supporting sustainable community gardens throughout the town of Greenwich.
Their first community garden in Greenwich, The Armstrong Court Community Organic Garden, has been in existence for five years. At over 15,000 square feet, this garden boasts over 125 4’x8’ raised beds, a pergola & picnic benches, Native, Butterfly & Herb gardens, a newly-designed pizza oven, and two garden sheds filled with tools & wheelbarrows. The Butterfly Garden and several vegetable garden plots are home to their children’s gardening initiative which they offer to the on-site Head Start Program. The “Kids Gardening Club” is supported by the Greenwich Garden Club, Green Fingers Garden Club, CT Audubon and other local partners who help support these gardens and our other garden programs.
Their second garden—The Bible Street Community Garden—will increase the number of available community garden plots in Greenwich to over 200 and allow even more citizens to grow food for their families and neighbors.
Greenwich Community Gardens has delivered over 800 pounds of fresh produce to the Neighbor to Neighbor food pantry over the past three years, providing nutritious food to over 1,000 people who depend on this service weekly.
Creating more gardens in Greenwich will expand the capacity of our organization to address health and hunger issues, not only at the level of individual families who garden with us, but also through increased donations to the food pantry.
