The deal in a nutshell: You can "belong" to the community garden any time of the year by just showing up, doing some work, and bringing home some good food.  Share the work, share the harvest!   Just stop-by, help plant, weed, hoe, dig, mow, mulch, water, stake or harvest  and strike up a conversation. A great fun learning opportunity for the kids! The Garden is an ongoing enterprise; there is always something going on. Join at any time. The Garden is a self-supporting cooperative project sponsored by Readington Township under the aegis of the Open Space Advisory Board. Organized work/harvest sessions take place at 10:00 each Saturday morning for about an hour or 90 minutes, although leaders and some others show up at 9:00, especially on hot days.

Saturday mornings not good for you? Talk to the garden organizer, Dan Allen.  There is also a Thursday morning group that you can sign up for.

It's Spring at the Community Garden

Have you wanted to show your kids how vegetables grow but were too busy to make your own garden?  Do you long for the joy of picking fresh basil and dill in the warm sunshine, but can’t seem to get them to grow in that planter on the back stoop?  The Readington Community Garden is the answer!  Located at the Dobozynski Farm Park, the garden grows an absolutely amazing variety of fruits, nuts and vegetables -- a sure source of unusual beauty and new flavors.   You can share in the produce by helping out a lot or a little depending on your own schedule. 

The first meeting of the year is Saturday, March 21 at 10 am.    

Share the work, share the harvest! -- since 2009.  The Readington Community Garden is a loosely organized collection of nice people who are interested in growing food and community.  You can 'belong' to the community garden any time of the year by just showing up, doing some work, and bringing home some good food.  There are no obligatory fees, timed work requirements, or forms to fill out.  Just stop by, grab a hoe/weed/vegetable, and strike up a conversation. 

Garden Location: Dobozynski Farm Park, 42 Woodschurch Rd, Flemington , NJ 08822 (The dirt portion of Woodschurch; at the big red barns).
