It has been a goal of the North Attleborough Community Gardens (NACG) team to expand the number of garden beds to better serve the residents of North Attleborough. On Sunday, June 6, members of the NACG team came together at the gardens on High Street (Codding Farm/LeStage Property) to assemble and complete eight new raised garden beds.

The work could not have been completed without the help of local Boy Scouts Troop 33, led by Assistant Scout Master and Order of the Arrow Troop Advisor Dylan Desrosiers. Desrosiers is a recent graduate of North Attleborough High School and recipient of the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. He and fellow troop members worked diligently to fill the garden beds with organic soil that was donated by Plainville-based Lewicki & Sons Excavating, Inc.

New gardeners on the wait list quickly rented the new beds, but those interested in gardening at the North Attleborough Community Gardens next year should contact the NACG team at NACGORG@gmail.com.

North Attleborough Community Gardens is a Section 501(c)3 non-profit organization located at the historic Codding Farm. The organization was founded to create a space where all members can connect with the earth and each other. The NACG team also works with other local nonprofits that support food access for North Attleborough residents.
