About Us

Welcome to the Chelsea Community Garden! The garden was started in 2008 by community volunteers, in coordination with Faith in Action and the City of Chelsea, on two-thirds of an acre of land off Sibley Road behind the TimberTown play structure. Grants from the 5 Healthy Towns Foundation, the Chelsea Community Foundation and the Chelsea Area Garden Club were used to create the infrastructure.  Garden members are grateful for their generous support in helping to provide access to nutritious food for our community.
