About Davis Park Community Garden

The Davis Park Community Garden provides garden plots to residents of the Smith Hill, Elmhurst, and Valley neighborhoods in the city of Providence, RI.

Garden members can rent plots on a yearly basis. The garden plots vary in size, but most are 4’ x 10’ and 4’ x 8’. Rental fees range from $10 to $50.

Members are required to maintain their plots in accordance with common organic gardening practices (no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, no invasive species planted, etc).

Work days are held monthly from April to October where members join together to help maintain and improve the garden.
Meetings are held in the Fall, Winter and Spring.

All gardeners are expected to contribute 4 hours per month to community service projects involving the garden.

Garden members are encouraged to volunteer for various jobs and teams that help maintain and improve the garden

Garden members help maintain a herb garden, strawberry plot, blueberry bushes, raspberry plants, grape vines, flower beds. Members are entitled to harvest these plants throughout the growing season.

The garden maintains a compost bin and finished compost is available for all garden members.
Garden funds are used to purchase compost in the Spring to supplement our own compost.

The city forestry department provides wood chip mulch free of charge.

Two yard hydrants provide water for the garden. The parks department performs major repairs.

The garden also provides tools that all members can use to maintain their plot and other areas of the garden. Some of the tools are shovels, cultivators, lawnmowers, string trimmer, and hand tools.
