The Cornucopia Project partners with Peterborough Recreation Department to create the Cornucopia Community Garden
The Cornucopia Project has been planning and building a community garden at the Peterborough Community Center for more than a year. Funding for the project originally began with a generous donation from the Henry L. and Patricia J. Nielsen Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation along with support from numerous organizations and community members. More than 100 volunteers have donated over 1,000 hours of time to make the garden a reality, and more than $10,000 in in-kind services.
The 7,500 square foot garden is comprised of wheelchair accessible pathways, a garden shed, greenhouse, mini-amphitheater, and 15 raised vegetable beds. It is designed to be a giving and teaching garden. Vegetables raised by Cornucopia staff and volunteers are donated directly to food pantries and seniors in need. The garden and greenhouse will provide a location for gardening classes through a partnership with the Peterborough Recreation Department.
