Starting Vauxhall Community Garden in 2021

Vauxhall Community Garden volunteers meet on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at 12:00 PM to assign tasks for the 2021 season and prepare the Community Garden for the planting season of 2021. The volunteers cleared out boxes for planting this season and collected applications for the upcoming season. Applications are still available for 2021 season.

Plans were made to start the community garden on  April 17th however the plants will not be available for pickup until after May 9th, we will use that date to work in the Greenhouse that will be installed in our Garden in April of 2021.

Some ideals from volunteers for the Greenhouse are, starting plants from seeds, growing flowers, we are also interested in Hydronic Gardening, we look forward to getting additional information on implementing Hydronic gardening in 2021.

Planting will start on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 a list will be used from community gardeners to obtain plants.

Golden Kitchen Food Pantry will be open to the community for distribution on April 10th, 2021 from 10:00 -12:00 PM,

“This work is supported by funding from Atlantic Health System as part of the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network.”
