Southbridge Community Garden

Founded in 2011 by the South Wilmington Planning Network (SWPN), SCG aims to provide local residents with the knowledge, skills and tools to grow their own healthy and organic fruits and vegetables.  Garden members can participate in a popup farmers market, youth farm stand, and other events.

To learn more, signup for a plot in the garden, or volunteer at the SCG, please contact Mr. Wayne Marshall at (302) 384-0967 or

The story of the Southbridge Community Garden parallels that of many community gardens: community bands together, transforms vacant space, grows food, employs people, encourages composting, and then tragically loses lot to development. We need your help to save the garden from development, so that we may continue to empower community residents and teach them the importance of  growing and cooking their own fresh produce. You may read the whole story of the garden in an article published in The Review


Please consider donating to our efforts through our Go Fund Me page.
