Community Garden

When a determined group of homeowners decides to work together, there's nothing they can't accomplish, and West Reading's community garden stands as proof. Previously a vacant lot, this parcel of land was transformed into one of West Reading's most popular neighborhood features through the efforts and generosity of our citizens.

    At the West Reading community garden, residents are welcome to grow their own vegetables and flowers, relax, and socialize with their neighbors. For small fee, amateur gardeners can reserve their own four-by-ten-foot plot of enriched soil and grow to their hearts' content. For some, it's a way to save on groceries and eat healthier foods; for others, it's a great way to make new friends and strengthen the community. Stop by the garden and have a look around; you never know when a neighbor will offer you some extra veggies!
