Community Gardens 

There are two community gardens in New Castle, both administered by the local non-profit InterGenerate. 

The Chappaqua garden is located on the property of  the Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps, who has generously permitted us to garden there since 2011.  This long-established garden usually has only one or two openings a year, but it is always worth inquiring about. 

The Millwood garden just opened last year, and has 30 raised beds, and plenty of spots available.  It is located at the base of Sand Street, off of route 100 in Millwood, about a mile or two north of Rocky’s. 

In both gardens, people can rent an entire bed to garden for themselves, or they can sign up to be part of a team that gardens together or a team that grows food for donation to those in need. 

For more information, go to or email Suzi Novak, garden coordinator, at
