Get Your Belmont Garden Plot – Rock Meadow Community Garden

Tending The Garden PlotAs winter drags on it’s exciting to consider the prospect of spring and summer gardening.  Time’s a fleeting if you’re interested in reserving a community garden plot at Rock Meadow in Belmont, Massachusetts.  The $25 fee for the season and completed registration form are due by March 15th.

The 70 acre Rock Meadow Conservation Area is located in Belmont about one mile outside of Waverley Square, adjacent to Beaver Brook North Reservation.  The community garden plots at Rock Meadow were established in 1969 and plots now number 130.  Belmont originally had victory garden plots that dated from World War II on land now occupied by the high school on Concord Avenue.  Those plots were moved to Rock Meadow in 1969 after the town purchased the land from McLean Hospital.

Garden plots are not limited to Belmont residents though it is possible that residents will be given preference if demand exceeds availability.

This is a wonderful opportunity to grow your own food – or flowers – especially if you don’t have a suitable garden space at home.
