Welcome to our community of gardeners! The Cape Community Garden at Gull Crest is an organic garden located on land owned by the town adjacent to the Gull Crest athletic fields off Spurwink Avenue. The town provides the land and the water supply, but does not sponsor or manage the garden. The Community Garden consists solely of its member gardeners and is coordinated by the Garden Committee. The garden relies on the cooperative efforts of everyone to maintain the garden. The better we work together, the more we all prosper from the enriched community we create.
Gardeners tend their own individual plots and adjacent paths and collectively maintain the paths, fence and water system.
In addition to individual plots, space is set aside to grow produce for local food pantries through a program called Maine Harvest for Hunger. Volunteers coordinate this wonderfully worthy program, and other gardeners pitch in to plant, tend, harvest and deliver, or to donate extra vegetables from their own plots. During the previous eleven seasons, we’ve donated thousands of pounds of fresh, organically grown produce to needy families.
In 2010, in loving memory of Judy Simonds, one of the garden's founders, Judy's Pantry was established in Cape Elizabeth at the Methodist Church to provide healthy, local produce to Cape families with limited resources.
