Easton Garden Works

About Us

Easton’s seven community gardens were adopted by GEDP in 2018. Our mission is to serve the Easton community by providing people with fresh fruits and vegetables, giving residents the opportunity to maintain their own plot of green space, fostering a community of individuals interested in sustainability, and making Easton a greener city. Join us for gardening workshops, events, and volunteer days! Stay up to date on our latest events on our Instagram.

“The More you Grow” Workshop Series

We love hosting informational hands-on projects: sustainable floristry, beekeeping 101, seed starting, healthy meal prep, and more. For the 2023 season we hosted microgreen growing, rain barrel-making at the West Ward Market, Earth Day activities, and more. Visit our workshop page to see what what’s offered, and tune in soon for details on when to join us next!

Compost Program

Not only does it reduce your family’s carbon footprint, but it also contributes to growing healthy plants in our gardens & at your home. Our collection site is at our Lower Hackett Community Garden.

Seed Library

Easton Garden Works hosts an annual Seed Swap event with free seeds for community gardeners and the public. Our mobile Seed Library pops up at events throughout Easton, distributing and collecting from individuals who want to donate to (and use) this food sovereignty initiative. Mini seed packets are distributed to Little Free Libraries, events, community gardeners, and volunteers throughout the season. Interested in checking out a vast selection of favorites and heirloom seeds? Learning how to save your own seeds? Want to donate your own saved seeds to the cause? Email We also plan to launch a more traditional on-site Tool & Seed Library soon with a variety to borrow from, free of charge for the community.
