Watering our Children with Knowledge

Summer 2018 at the YMCA of Gloucester County brought a plentiful harvest- in more ways than one.
Our day camp kids spent 11 long weeks planting, watering, and waiting, as their garden grew.  As the children grew and thrived this summer in our care-so did their garden.  The campers were able to pick the fresh fruits and veggies that they grew in the garden and taste test all of them.  We also tried healthy smoothies made with fruits, vegetables, yogurt, milk, and 100% juice.

With the summer coming to an end, The YMCA of Gloucester County is preparing to host its first ever Farmers Market.  The Farmers Market will be at the YMCA of Gloucester County and Stewart Lake Park in Woodbury, New Jersey and will operate May 2019-October 2019.  The Market will be filled with fresh foods, health education, physical activity, and fun for all.  We are seeking vendors to participate in our market.  If you are interested in being a vendor at the YMCA of Gloucester County Farmers Market, please reach out to Tyler Marchei at for more information.

Follow us for more market information coming soon!
