Join volunteers from Watertown Community Gardens in maintaining our public gardens, which support native bees, butterflies, birds, and more.
We will start each maintenance day by taking a close look at the gardens, to see which bees and other wildlife might be living there.
Fall garden maintenance activities may include planting new plants, weeding, pruning, adding compost, mulching, etc.
Any participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event.
We will be meeting at the DPW first, and sending a smaller team to the Knowles Delta after group introductions and instructions have been reviewed.
DPW - The garden is in front of the Watertown Department of Public Works (DPW) located at 124 Orchard St, Watertown, MA 02472.
Knowles Delta - The garden is on the west side of the traffic delta between Belmont, Orchard, and Lexington Sts. Knowles Rd runs north-south into Belmont St.

**This garden has been thriving, and many plants can be moved to new gardens. If you'd like to bring some plants home with you, bring your own pots or bags to transport them.**
