Andover Community Garden

Established 2016

A fun and relaxing place to garden.

About Us

Andover Community Garden broke ground the spring of 2016. Now in our third year, our Association members enjoy gardening plots that allow us to grow wonderful vegetables and flowers. We teach each other our best tips and tricks and we also donate some of what we grow to Neighbors in Need, a food donation program in Andover. 

The Andover Community Garden Association, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit. The main garden is located on the Virginia Hammond Reservation, on High Plain Road across from the leaf composting site & the dog park. Our second location is on the land behind the Andover Historical Society. Garden plots are open to all residents who join our Association, on a first come first serve and lottery basis. Each Association member contributes an annual plot fee to cover maintenance. Once rented you can plant up your plot with organic seeds and plants, and reap the produce of your own plot. SNAP recipients can contact our Treasurer at for free or reduced rate plots. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must join the Association and adhere to basic garden rules. 

Our Community Garden Board consists of Ann Knowles, Bill and Jane Ward, Rebecca Tola, Andy Dorsey, and Cindy and John O'Connor, all residents of Andover.
