Maintaining various Community Gardens
Members gather from spring through fall to weed, trim, plant, mulch, and finally put the community gardens to bed. We are very thankful to the Town of Bethlehem Highway Department for their heavy lifting, delivery of mulch and concerted maintenance efforts with the Bethlehem Garden Club at each of the gardens. Please contact us to help with this effort and enjoy viewing the results around town.
The Community Garden on the corner of Cherry Avenue and Delaware Avenue in Delmar, NY welcomes drivers into the village. The garden, created in 2003, was the first town garden to be installed on a highway by the Bethlehem Garden Club. That year, the garden won an award from the Perennial Plant magazine.
The Community Garden at Route 9W, Glenmont, created in 2004, was designed using a prairie theme enhanced by trees. It is located at the intersection of 9W and Route 32.
The Community Garden at Cottage Lane, Selkirk, NY was created in 2005. The Garden, located at the fork between Maple Avenue and Cottage Lane, enhances the neighborhood and welcomes visitors to Selkirk.
The Community Garden at Bethlehem Town Hall, was created in 2006. It is located at the corner of Delaware Avenue and Borthwick Avenue.
Much work is done each fall to weed, trim back, and put the community gardens to bed until spring. New and current members are encouraged and always needed to help in maintaining these town treasures.
