Auburn Community Gardens

The Auburn Community Gardens are managed by a coordinating team comprised of the City of Auburn, St.Mary’s Nutrition Center, University of Maine Cooperative Extension, Androscoggin Land Trust, a neighborhood resident, and a Garden Coordinator. 

The Garden projects wouldn’t have been successful without the support from: Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation Food Fund, Community Garden/Farming grant, National Park Service, Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance, Community Development Block Grants, and Fiskars Project Orange Thumb.  We would also like to recognize Take 2, a program of Goodwill NNE, Lewiston Regional Technical Center (LRTC), Wolf Pack Fitness & Edward Little High School.
