Weather permitting, the new plots should be available by May 1st. The garden will now have over 100 individual plots that are available for residents to “rent” for a small yearly fee.
The garden is located in a park like setting with plenty of sun. It is fully fenced to keep out the deer and small animals. Water and some gardening tools are also provided. Existing gardeners are allowed to continue renting the same plot each year, as long as it has been properly maintained and utilized. The garden plots are available in two sizes. The “Large” plot is 4’ x 32’ and the “Junior” plot is 4’ x 16’. The garden is open year round, and there are some gardeners that start planting cold weather vegetables as early as March and continue harvesting until late October.
Each year there are normally more people requesting plots than there are plots available. To insure that the plots are awarded fairly, a list is maintained by the Borough Clerk’s Office in Borough Hall. Available plots are awarded based upon the order that names were placed on that list. Anyone wishing to be added to that waiting list should either call (973 538-2224) or visit the Borough Clerk’s Office and request that their name be added.
All assistance is provided by IRS certified volunteers.
