Kiuna Kennebunk Community Garden Committee

Kiuna (Abenaki word for "Our") Kennebunk Community Garden started in 2008 opening to residents and non-residents to grow their own organic produce for their families and for local food pantries.   Our community garden is located on the Kennebunk Animal    Welfare Society property, West Kennebunk, Maine.  We have over 40 gardeners renting spacious plots along with a very large area      for growing organic produce for local food pantries.  
                                         This successful program is an inspiration to newly starting community gardens.  As a Master Gardener volunteer, I'm                                                              available to speak to your organization about starting a community garden in your area.  Be warned: a successful                                                                    community garden is a lot of work and it takes a group of dedicated volunteers such as the wonderful organizers                                                                       of the Kennebunk Community Garden Committee and the numerous volunteer gardeners who enjoy                                                                                       gardening and socializing in a relaxing and beautiful setting.
