About the Community Garden

Established in 2011, the Town of Perinton Community Garden is located in Potter Park (53 W Church Street, Fairport, NY). The garden was once the original site for a WWII Victory Garden. Victory gardens were vegetable gardens planted by community members coming together to ensure adequate food supply for civilians and troops.

The garden offers 100+ raised garden beds to Fairport/Perinton community members. The plots are 8ft x 4ft and members can grow vegetables, herbs and flowers. The space also features a pollinator garden, vertical gardens and a worm composting system.

Our Mission

The Town of Perinton Community Garden seeks to steward the beautification of a safe, positive, and healthy space for members to deepen their connections, knowledge and grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

Our Vision

The vision of the Town of Perinton Community Garden is to celebrate the rich heritage of “Victory Gardens” by nourishing community connections with educational programs, food donations and sustainable living and gardening.
