The Fellowship Community Garden's first season began in 2015. Each year, we have welcomed gardeners and harvests and have grown to capacity--filling all available garden plots.
In 2021, a garden seed swap and a garden party were held. Gardener surpluses helped to donate over 400 lbs of fresh, healthy produce to the Phoenixville Area Community Services and Phoenixville Women's Outreach.
The garden also boasts a community herb plot where all gardeners can pick a handful of seasonings for their next recipe.
Plans are in place in Spring 2022 to mount and install a Little Free Library to swap and share gardening books, with a container assembled and painted by local Girl Scout Troop 4082 and Dan Rich of Kennett Square (thelatheofheaven.com).
March 2022 update:
Our 2022 gardening season has begun. All of our gardeners from last season have returned and have held their first seed swap with over 20 seeds exchanged. A plant seedling swap is tentatively scheduled for early May.
Girl Scout Troop 4082 is planning to install the Little Free Library outside the garden in late spring. The troop is currently gathering gardening books, putting the last touches of paint on the door and adding a plaque. Gardeners have been selecting gardening books, new and old to share with neighbors.
Garden plots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, with priority given to current gardeners and West Vincent Township residents.
Annually, between end February and mid-March, after current gardeners confirm their interest to continue, an on-line registration will take place for new gardener submissions.
Newly available plots are assigned on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to West Vincent Township residents. New garden requests will ONLY be accepted during the registration period, AFTER current gardeners confirm their interest to continue in the current season.
The fees per season, per plot are: $35 (20 x 20)/$25 (10 x 20).
