Come garden with us and the best view in Plainfield!

Look for our spring workshops to be announced soon.

Our Garden Plant Stand will open in June 2017

We will have varieties of organically started, northern cool climate-short season tomato plants. This year, after struggling with the blight and wilt, we are focusing on disease resistant varieties. We also have several other vegetable varieties and some Guyette Raspberry canes.
The garden stand is self serve in the parking lot of the Franklin Land Trust's Guyette Farm.

Welcome to the Raspberry Hill Community Garden.  

We are a group of passionate garden and sustainable-living enthusiasts in the small rural hilltown of Plainfield, Massachusetts. We have established a relationship with our local Franklin Land Trust to use some of their pristine farm land for a community garden. This land, also known as the Guyette Farm, was gifted to the Franklin Land Trust by Evelyn Guyette. We seek to create a beautiful and functional agricultural space for community members to use and enjoy, as a continuation of the long farming history of the land by the Guyette family. The Raspberry Hill Community Garden prepared the ground in 2011 and established community garden plots in the spring of 2012. We currently have about 20 full and 1/2 size plots.

We hope you will enjoy learning about our garden and the things we do for our community. Please visit our web site often for information on  garden projects, public workshops, recipes, and to find out what's growing in the garden.
