Shared Harvest Garden/ Killingworth Community Gardens
The Killingworth Community Gardens’ mission is to provide residents with an opportunity to come together for the purpose of food production, environmental education and to encourage multi-generational gatherings. Individuals and groups at all levels of gardening expertise are welcome.
The gardens are located at Parmelee Farm, 465 Route 81, just north of the HK Middle School. The 132-acre town-owned property is open to the public for passive recreation. The 19th century farmhouse is now the home of the Killingworth Historical Society. Parking is available in a main parking lot off the road.
