<p>The city's nine community gardens mean Somervillians who long to garden don't have to go without homegrown tomatoes and other garden delights–even if most of us have postage-stamp-sized yards (or perhaps just a stoop). Volunteer garden coordinators manage each garden. They assign personal garden plots to interested green thumbs and organize bulk compost purchases. Gardeners pay a small fee (usually under $25 per year) and then can plant whatever they like in their plot be it flowers, herbs or vegetables.</p>
<p>All gardeners share upkeep of the garden pathways and compost bins, but plots are private: if you grow it, only you (and the occasional raccoon) pick it.</p> <p>Every city resident is eligible for a plot, but wait lists can be lengthy. The gardens are managed by the city's Conservation Commission and overseen by a citywide garden coordinator. To sign up for any garden, contact the coordinator at the number above. Individuals and businesses with land available for a new garden should contact the coordinator as well.</p>
