Come see our growing space for yourself and celebrate the end of another successful season! We’ll be hosting our Open Garden on Saturday October 19th, 2019 from 10am-1pm at Lauter Park in Willimantic. There will be garden tours, food and game organized by the Windham Youth CORE. This event is free but you must RSVP.
Located in beautiful Philip Lauter Park, Willimantic, these include our own youth-led Thread City Family Garden, and support for the WAIM Community Gardens.
Thread City Family Garden
Our new garden, established in 2016, grows fruits, vegetables, and edible fungi for the Windham community. Through a variety of methods–some experimental, some time-tested–the Windham Youth CORE, GROW Windham,and many volunteers all provide opportunities for the community to prep, plant, and take root. A garden coordinator facilitates the participation of groups from local schools, universities, places of worship, organizations, and individuals in order to maximize networking and the community of urban farming practice.
