Salem Community Gardens, established in 2007, 
rents out raised beds and gardening plots to 400 families in Salem, Massachusetts. Our three garden locations are Palmer Cove, Mack Park and Pickman Park. Each garden has its own personality - some plots are large, in-ground plots, other plots are smaller raised beds. Our organization - a 501(c)3 organization - is entirely volunteer-run, with specific Garden Captains at each garden, and an eight-person Board of Directors which oversees all three gardens.
