Drew Park Community Garden

The Town of Fairfield's Community Garden plots are located at Drew Park at the end of Warde Terrace (220 Warde Terrace). The Tree Warden oversees the Garden.

Mission

The mission of the Community Garden is to provide a limited number of garden plots of varying sizes, sited on public land, and to make them available to all individuals and their families who reside in the Town of Fairfield. These plots are for the sole purpose of the cultivation of vegetables, herbs and flowers by the assigned plot holders who are encouraged to follow organic and sustainable gardening practices. The aim is to offer a communal, recreational and learning experience through the exchange of horticultural knowledge with each other, which is healthy and nourishing for the body, the mind and the land itself. Produce may be grown for personal consumption or gifted to those in need.
