Community Gardens

Every summer, Langhorne Heritage Farm hosts community gardeners from throughout the area. The Community Gardens started out in 1986 with eight plots. Today, 100 plots are rented out for flower and vegetable gardening. The community gardens are 100% organic, as the use of herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are prohibited.

Included with the plot fee is a thorough rototilling and chiseling of the soil, performed in the spring just prior to opening day.  Also, for the convenience of the gardeners, nine water taps are located throughout the field.  Our gardeners take care to water wisely and conserve this most precious resource.
