About Birch Street Community Garden
Starting in spring, Concord’s Birch Street Community Garden hums with activity as gardeners of all ages tend more than a hundred plots of flower and vegetable gardens. It’s just more evidence that community gardening has taken root in the Capitol region.

Community gardens combine a chance for socialization and recreation with an opportunity to grow fresh food, as well as inspire self-reliance and community development. Our national resurgence of interest in local foods and agriculture has sparked a greater appreciation for gardening of all sorts. According to the University of New Hampshire’s Cooperative Extension, there are at least 100 community gardens around the state.

The Birch Street Community Garden is located off a dirt road on a site formerly owned by the New Hampshire State Hospital. Now, about 150 gardeners of all ages tend the gardens and grow everything from corn, tomatoes, and squash to pumpkins and sunflowers.
