Andover Community Garden


Our mission is to educate our members about organic gardening and to provide opportunities to them so that they can grow and harvest vegetables, herbs and flowers within a welcoming community setting.

Garden plots are open to all residents of Andover and surrounding towns who join our Association. Plots that are turning over are offered yearly to people on the waiting list on a first come, first serve basis. You  can request a plot here. We will start assigning plots to newcomers in March 2024.

Each Association member contributes an annual plot fee to cover maintenance. To be part of our association, you must be willing to agree to our requirements. These are fairly standard rules for community gardens, with requirements such as gardening organically and participating in workdays and cleanups; and we do try to help new folks with this request by giving lessons/ideas for how to garden organically. Once rented, you plant up your plot, harvest and maintain your own plot for your own family’s use during the gardening season. 

Garden Managers

High Plain Garden: Your garden managers are: Yolanda Chico Miller, Lauren Conoscenti, Lisette Pylant, Jane Ward and Viki Vasquez. Viki and Jane are your plant gardening gurus. All other problems (general questions, hoses, water, locks, vacation, etc.) should be raised with your other three managers or the help line: 


Work Day & Shut Down, Saturday, November 4th 10 AM to close

We will all work together to clear the remaining crops from plots and return them to their original state (bare earth). We encourage those of you attending the 11/4 closedown workday, to begin with your plot and then move on to others that need to be cleared. Per garden regulations, we must: 

We need to know your plans for next season. Please email, ccing lisette@andovergarden by November 1.




If you plan to attend the closedown but are still deciding about returning next season, that's OK! In this case, we'll see you on November 4th, and you'll have until December 31st to decide if you want to return. At that point, we will open the remaining available plots to new additions from our waitlist and the public.
