Community Gardens

Registration opens on:
Oct. 13-Nov. 30:   For Current Gardeners
Dec. 1-Jan. 31:       For New Gardeners



The Town of Natick operates four organic community gardens for residents to grow food recreationally and supplementally during the spring and summer months. These welcoming green spaces are cared for by Natick residents and volunteer groups, and build community through the shared work of growing fresh, healthy food.

Natick currently offers 102 individual rental plots across four garden  sites located conveniently around town (map). All Natick residents are welcome to participate in the community gardens program.

These oases of green are tended and cared for by local residents and are sources of neighborhood pride that connect people and place. They turn neighbors into friends, strengthen family bonds and traditions, and inspire joy in the shared work of growing fresh, healthy, and delicious food. Together they create a thriving neighborhood asset that benefits everyone in the community.

Please see the Gardener Meeting 2021 video; this meeting addressed the garden program updates for the 2022 season and contains a demonstration of signing up for a plot on Community Pass at 12:05 minutes.

Garden Workshops and Events

The gardens bring residents together for workshops and community-building events. These events are open to all, including residents who are not plot holders. Where possible, workshops are advertised on Community Pass and are posted on the Town’s calendar

Interested residents can apply to rent a garden plot via Community Pass or by filling out a paper application available at the Community and Senior Center, Department of Public Works, or Housing Authority Office. Paper applications can be returned with payment to the Community-Senior Center.


Applications are received October-November for current plot holders and December-January for new gardeners. Gardeners can use their plots from April to September. Gardeners must reapply every year, but existing members are given priority. Plot fees are due each year and are $75. There are a select number of low cost plots available to residents for $50. Residents are encouraged to provide their own seeds and tools, but water access and seasonal tool storage is available at each garden. 


Residents may apply for one plot in one garden. Once your payment has been processed, you will receive a welcome email from the Community Gardens Coordinator that includes a copy of the garden agreements, organic standards, and your plot assignment. 


Questions about the community gardens program can be directed to the Community Gardens Coordinator at communitygardens@natickma.org or by calling 508-647-6400 ext. 2013.
