EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Are you an apartment dweller looking for a bit of outdoor space to plant your favorite summer veggies?  A homeowner with a yard that is not really conducive to gardening (no fence -too many deer)?  A new vegan who wants to "grow local?"
Opportunity to participate in the East Brunswick Community Garden awaits.
The Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission is looking for new gardeners for the East Brunswick Community Garden this spring. There are 30 plots available for rent, which usually are rented prior to the start of the growing season.

Thirty garden plots are still available at the East Brunswick Community Garden for the 2017 growing season for township residents and local employees who lack the space, proper sunlight or soil to grow produce and flowers at home.

Located next to the Municipal Complex on Rues Lane, the popular garden has 10 x 10-foot plots available to new gardeners for the coming season on a first-come, first-served basis for $10 per season. All gardeners must provide four hours of community garden service during the season. For more information and to register for a plot, go to ebcommunitygarden.webs.com.

The garden’s website offers timely articles, tips and tricks for gardeners, a calendar of events and information on donating surplus produce. Gardeners have donated more than a ton of surplus produce in the last few years.

Established in 2009, the garden offers 160 plots for new and returning gardeners who live or work in East Brunswick. New fencing erected by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission and the township now protects the area from deer and other critters.
