Manchester Community Garden 2019!

Ready to garden?
We are so excited to begin our 9th season sponsoring the Manchester Community & Educational Garden!

There are plots available for organic gardeners in two sizes: 300 square feet for $40 and a few half-plots for $25. Don’t wait and risk disappointment, plots normally fill fast.

Contact Joan Ambusk at 802-824-3642, or, and she’ll get you started.

The success of this garden, and it’s place in the Northshire community is a living, growing tribute to what can be accomplished when hearts, heads, and hands come together!

MEMS Students Pitch In

When you’re enjoying your next stroll through the Manchester Educational & Community and YAP! Gardens you can thank MEMS students Tonya Merrow, Eric Sheldon and Richard Mattison. They’re hard work in spreading new wood chips along the paths was invaluable, and illustrates the “community” aspect of this wonderful place.MEMS students help put the Manchester Community and Education Garden to bed MEMS students help put the Manchester Community and Education Garden to bed
