Applications Open for Plots in the WC Community Garden

Interested in cultivating a plot in the Williams College Community Garden for the 2021 growing season? Complete an application before the end of Sunday February 21st.


Keen gardeners know that when there is snow on the ground it is time to make plans. Whether you are experienced or new to gardening if you are interested in cultivating a plot in the Williams College Community Garden for the 2021 growing season, complete this application before the end of Sunday February 21st. Before completing the application please read the regulations of the Community Garden. The steering committee plans to review all applications and respond to all applicants by the end of February.

Individual plots are small raised beds, about four by eight feet; a  great size for new gardeners. We invite participation from any member of the Williams community and our intention is to eventually open participation to local community members as well. However, due to the health and safety restrictions associated with the pandemic, participation for the 2021 growing season will be restricted to current students, staff, and faculty of the College.

We encourage students to participate and apply for a plot. Even if you are planning to be away from the Williams campus for the summer or a semester you can still participate. We plan to pair such students with staff or faculty who will be around town for the summer. If having your own plot to garden sounds too much, but as a student you still want to garden, remember the Williams student Garden Club offers a great alternative. Contact Matthew Roychowdhury ([email protected]) for more  information.

The community garden is located to the west of Stetson Road behind Poker Flats. If you visit the site now, you will see that there is still some work to be completed. Our partners in Planning Design & Construction are committed to having everything ready well before the planting season in our area.
