Garden in a Box is a collaborative project of Piscataquis Regional Food Center and UMaine Cooperative Extension Piscataquis County. Funding for Garden in a Box resource binders for individuals and libraries, plus a 15 gal cloth container, soil, plants, supplies, tools, and individual coaching for Garden in a Box gardeners are made possible by the Quimby Family Foundation.

Garden in a Box Resource Binders will be available for the general public in six Maine Highland area libraries (Abbott Library in Dexter, Thompson Free Library in Dover-Foxcroft, Guilford Memorial Library in Guilford, Harvey Memorial Library in Parkman, Monson Public Library, Shaw Public Library in Greenville). Beginning gardeners will find a wealth of information to support their efforts, whether they grow in containers or according to more traditional methods.  Participating libraries will host a Garden in a Box “Salad Garden” planted with tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce. Patrons can check out the Garden in a Box Resource Binder like they would any other library book, and follow the progress of the library’s salad garden over the growing season.
