Have you heard about the Gloucester Township Organic Community Garden? It is tucked away in Glendora across the road from the historic Gabreil Daveis Tavern. Store-bought organic vegetables and herbs are pricey, but you can grow some of your own pesticide free food in a 10 foot by 12 foot plot for only $20 a season. The township provides wonderful compost made from leaves and grass clippings gathered throughout the year. Water stations with hoses are provided for renters. The nearby toolshed is stocked with a variety of garden tools such as spades and hoes. There is a “sitting area” inside the garden area to relax now and again while you work in your plot. You can enjoy your lunch at a picnic table provided by an Eagle Scout Troop when the native perennials are blooming and the garden production is in full swing.

If you’ve always wanted to try growing a few things, the GTOCG is the perfect place to do it. Everything but the seeds is provided for you. If you find this interests you, come to the Mayor’s Office at the Municipal Building at the corner of Chews Landing Road and Hider Lane. You will need to fill out an application, pay $20 for your plot, and sign waivers for anyone who will be working in the plot. You will receive a welcome packet that includes guidelines and tips to get you started. There is a Garden Committee that will advise you as well. There are only a few plots left. Contact Gabby or Michele at 856-228-4000, ext. 3228 if you are interested.
