Viles Arboretum invites anyone who would like to participate in our Community Gardens Program to join us. The Arboretum offers a large array of garden plots for raising vegetables, herbs and flowers. Here at the Arboretum, interested garden lovers can gather together to plant seeds and plant friendships.

Each person or group gets a 20x20 roped off plot to work with. The cost is $30, or free to members.  If you are someone you know might like to participate, call 207-626-7989 or email

 Our goal is to make plots available for planting by Memorial Day Weekend. We now have a tiller for our tractor so it will be much easier for us to till the garden on our own schedule. 

This program is a great way to learn from others, trade seeds and plants and join in an activity where you meet other gardeners and people from the area. 

The Arboretum provides:

- Watering cans


-Water and hoses

 -Some implements 

-Tilled garden plots.
