That’s a Mighty Fine Garden
That’s a Mighty Fine Garden! is a project of Gate City Community Gardens, a NH non-profit dedicated to creating more community garden spaces in Nashua. The goal of That’s a Mighty Fine Garden! is to highlight local gardeners, spread positivity about the good things happening in our community, and to show what you can grow with just a little space! If you know of a great garden (even if it is your own!), we would love to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 603-204-0397.
