Marsh Sanctuary offers the community many ways of engaging with our 156-acre nature preserve. The Community Garden and the Rewilding School have brought a new level of interest in our outdoor education programming.
The Community Garden, created in 2010 with a generous grant from Rusticus Garden Club, is organized by a group of Marsh Sanctuary volunteers and provides 40 garden plots of varying sizes to local gardeners. Gardeners tend and maintain their gardens organically. For more information about the Community Garden and plot availability, see the links below.
