Southbury Community Garden


The Southbury Community Garden provides a healthy community to cultivate the joys of gardening, meet fellow gardeners, and contribute to our local food pantry. The Southbury Community Garden is a member garden for Southbury residents operated through the Southbury Department of Parks and Recreation. The members are required to abide by the Garden Regulations.

Plots are available through the Southbury Parks and Recreation Department in early spring. Please check the website or Parks and Recreation Spring Brochure for more information.

Garden Work Days

We are scheduling regular workdays that all gardeners are encouraged to attend. We will start the days around 9:00am. We do realize this timing will not work for everyone; please feel free to come any time throughout the day. A list of tasks will be posted on the Kiosk.

  • Saturday, June 3, 2017
  • Saturday, July 8, 2017
  • Saturday, August 5, 2017
  • Saturday, September 9, 2017

We are hoping that these scheduled work days will help build a robust healthy garden with a strong sense of community.

We would also like to reserve the date of Saturday, September 23, 5:00p.m. for a potluck style celebration of the garden season. This will be held at the Settler’s Park Gazebo.

Happy Gardening!
