Aurelia's Garden 2021

Aurelia's Garden, Medway - June 4 to June 18 2021

Please join us at Aurelia's Pantry Garden. 

In 2020, Aurelia’s Garden was created to grow fresh and nutritious produce to address local food insecurity.  Aurelia’s Garden cares for a portion of land at the Medway Community Farm to grow produce for two food pantries and a shelter for women in Medway.

Volunteers will learn about farming in an ecologically harmonious manner by working in the field with 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:  Medway Community Farm, 50 Winthrop St, Medway, MA 02053.

There is a small parking lot next to the house, and a few limited spots next to the Farm Stand. 

It is also ok to park on Winthrop Street.

COVID-19 Safety Updates

With social distancing and work restrictions still in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been considering how best to move forward while keeping everyone involved safe.

Our very own Hannah Traggis has written an extensive set of guidelines for community gardens that has been featured in the New York Times and is being implemented by community gardens across the nation.

Hannah will be leading volunteer training on safe work environments and safe habits at our gardening sites. We are pleased to be able to continue to do the important work of growing fresh and nutrient dense produce for food pantries during these challenging times.

The quick and Dirty COVID-19 guidelines to know ahead of time are:

  • All volunteers must bring their own tools (including long-handled tools such as shovels and pitchforks and rakes)
  • Please do not plan to share tools with anyone
  • Bring and wear a mask, and a spare
  • Bring hand sanitizer
  • Bring your own lunch, drinks, and snacks as we won’t be able to share food and snacks for the time being.
