Scarborough, who manages Scarborough Farm in Jobstown, visits the community weekly on Fridays from June to October selling whatever’s in season: beets, sugar snap peas, scallions, swiss chard, corn, carrots, strawberries, eggs, honey, and pumpkins. 

Seabrook community members never have to cook dinner if they don’t want to, but many say they enjoy having fresh vegetables and fruit available for a quick breakfast or lunch in their apartment home’s kitchen or patio. Many residents even grow their own vegetables in the community gardens.
