A community works to create a garden

With all plots assigned, the Shrewsbury Community Garden is flourishing for a third year in a row.

The Shrewsbury Public Works Department Joins Forces with its Community to bring a garden to life

It is with great pleasure and pride that the nationally distributed “PUBLIC WORKS” magazine, July 2014, has acclaimed Shrewsbury’s DPW, “Department of the Month”.  In a full page article with photography, DPW is recognized for its work on behalf of the Shrewsbury Community Garden acknowledging “their role in advising on accessibility issues; traffic flow; and sun, wind, and drainage conditions” along with the site construction.


Congratulations to all who have contributed to the success of the Shrewsbury Community Garden. To read the online article click here
