Wish you more excuses to meet others in your community? 

Same here. And we're going to build a community garden to do just that.

Our community garden, based in Lakewood, NJ will nurture a sense of belonging and togetherness in a culturally diverse region.

Lakewood Township has generously provided us with land to build a community garden in the John Patrick Sports Complex on Vine Street (see map below). Located centrally, this quiet park is an ideal location with parking, public restrooms, and a nearby concession stand.  

A mix of vegetables, berries, shrubs, plants and flowers will be grown in the garden for a range of produce for volunteers to experiment with and for visitors to learn from and enjoy. A shaded area will be built to allow volunteers and visitors to sit and rest. This garden will welcome visitors to come explore and harvest as well as host events to teach participants about the natural world. 

The One Community Garden will invite local organizations to participate in planning, maintaining or learning and visiting at the garden.

We hope to serve children, families, young adults, and seniors through this garden by hosting events, volunteer sessions and other programs.
