Aurelia's Garden 2021

Aurelia's Garden, Wayland - May 15 to June 18 2021

Please join us at Aurelia's Pantry Garden in Wayland.  

In 2020, Aurelia’s Garden was created to grow fresh and nutritious produce to address local food insecurity. It is based in Wayland, MA, on 1.5 acres, the use of which has been granted to Aurelia’s Garden by a private homeowner to use for farming. 

The Garden is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization, led by a nationally recognized horticulturist.

We have partnered with Open Table, a strategic partner of the Greater Boston Food Bank, which serves 23 communities in Middlesex County.

All the produce from the Wayland farm is donated to Open Table.

Volunteers will learn about farming in an ecologically harmonious manner by working in the field with Hannah Traggis, our horticulturist, and Mass Master Gardener Project Managers, who will lead a team effort. We will all get our hands dirty together, while learning how to feed our soil, grow our ecosystem, and grow more food. Tasks will include direct seeding, growing and planting starts, weeding, pruning and performing preventative care for pests and diseases. Later we will harvest, review and pack produce for delivery. As the growing season wraps up, we will help prepare the field for winter by planting cold-hardy crops. Sessions will often include tutorials on pruning for production, weed and water management, seed collecting and processing, plant life cycles, and succession planning for season-long production.

Location:  Wayland, MA

Please park in the very back of the parking lot at the Peace Lutheran Church, on rt 126 in Wayland,  https://goo.gl/maps/kqeonLJLKm47WAJMA.  It is a 5 minute walk to the field. 

Note:  There are no facilities on the property, per se. We do own a portable camp-style toilet which can be used in the privacy of our storage shed - elegant, we know!
