Grow Your Own Produce at the East Brunswick Community Garden

Aspiring gardeners who lack the space, proper sunlight or soil to grow produce and flowers at home can rent a plot at the East Brunswick Community Garden for the 2017 growing season.

Located next to the Municipal Complex on Rues Lane, the popular garden has a limited number of 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.
