The community garden is a fenced in area beside the Nashua Heritage Rail Trail, which previously had been home to trash, pet waste, weeds and ugliness. The community garden features 24 separate, 4 by 8 foot, ADA compliant raised beds, each with a water spigot for easy watering. Around the outside of fence that encloses the garden are many raspberry plants for the public picking and a small children’s garden for local children to tend and harvest. Attached to the fence is a “free vegetable” bin, so gardeners can share their bumper crops with the community. The garden also has a Mutt Mitt station, so dog owners can clean up after their pets and garbage cans that the public can use. These two features have been important to helping keep the area much cleaner.

Nashua’s Farmers Market has taken many forms over the years. This year the market has grown in numbers and diversity of products available, including the addition of new Farmers, CSA providers, bakers, brewers, wine makers, and local artisanal product makers, as well as local crafters, artists, nonprofits, and downtown businesses showcasing their products. The biggest change for the 2018 market season is the new location – Main Street!

The #NashuaStreetPianos project is the culmination of eight months of preparation, dreaming, enthusiasm, and expression, made possible with the support of the City of Nashua as well as many generous businesses and individuals.
