Growing food & community

 

After working under the guidance of the Agricultural Advisory Commission in 2017, a core group of six individuals started the Hatfield Community Garden, which finished its first growing season in 2018. The garden is located on a four acre parcel on Billings Way on town-owned property. The garden takes up approximately one acre, with neighbor Harrison Bardwell of Bardwell Farm stewarding and growing on the remaining land.
