Greetings from Hillcrest Community Garden!
The plots are staked and ten yards of organic compost from Benson's Farm in Gorham have been spread and tilled into the ground in preparation for planting.
Part of the garden has been set aside for a shady nook for visiting and quiet reflection. Lovely shade plants for the area at the far end by the woods have been set aside by the Scarborough Garden Club, following their annual plant sale at the historic Hunnewell House. There will be ferns, Solomon's Seal, hosta, geraniums, astilbe, and more! Gardeners who have plants to donate can contact Project GRACE or the Scarborough Garden Club.
We wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks to Theresa Desfosses and State Manufactured Homes for their generous support for the garden project.
A couple of spots will be designated for 'planting a row for the hungry' to send fresh veggies and herbs to the Scarborough Food Pantry.
