TBEMC Community Garden Playground Equipment Sale

A snapshot of the land and one of the playground pieces for sale. Proceeds of the sale will go toward the construction of a handicap accessible community garden with and adult and child friendly play and relaxation space.
Perennials, vegetables, herbs, and bulbs will grow together in the TBEMC community garden.  

What does it take to grow a community garden? The list is extensive, but what you need first is a clear piece of land. 

TBEMC (Temple Beth El Mekor Chayim) of Cranford is in the planning and design stage for a community garden to be located adjacent to the main building. But before construction begins, the land needs to be cleared…of playground equipment.

The “first come-first serve” sale will continue until September 3rd before the items are placed for sale on online sale and auction websites. Currently, there are 11 PLAYGROUND pieces for sale ranging from $5 (basketball hoop) to $100 (large climber that retails for over $500). Proceeds will go toward initial construction phases of the garden, slated for late September.
