Plots available for new gardeners at East Brunswick Community Garden

A limited number of plots for new gardeners are available at the East Brunswick Community Garden for the 2019 growing season for township residents and local employees who may lack the space, proper sunlight or soil to grow produce and flowers at home.

Located adjacent to the municipal complex on Rues Lane, the popular garden has 10-by-10 foot plots available to new gardeners on a first-come, first-served basis for $45 for the first season. Returning gardeners pay $10 this year.

All gardeners are required to put in four hours of community garden service each year by working with a committee and participating in work days, or paying $40 in lieu of service.  Gardeners can select from a list of committees found on the registration form.

Established in 2009, the garden offers 160 plots for new and returning gardeners who live or work in East Brunswick. New fencing erected by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission and the township now protects the area from deer and other critters. For more information, send email to
