Ledyard St is our newest community garden, complete with a greenhouse and snack beds!
This .076-acre parcel in a residential neighborhood was donated to the SE CT Community Land Trust for use by FRESH New London in 2018. We engaged in door knocking and outreach to the neighbors and convened a series of meetings to plan and then build the garden in late 2018 and early 2019. In mid-June we completed all the beds and assigned them to community members. The Garden also includes a small unheated green house, a large garlic bed and 6 snack beds that line the sidewalk and invite pedestrians to harvest tomatoes, cucumbers and sweet peppers. Look for strawberries in the snack boxes in 2020.
