Middletown Introduces First Community Garden!
This past April, Middletown officially opened its first community garden at Stevenson Park, located on West Front Street near Shadow Lake. Over 50 gardeners wasted no time in getting started on that beautiful spring day by building support for their future produce and getting plants in the ground!
Since the opening of the Community Garden, our members have held several gardening information sessions, collected over 54 jars of honey from their beehives, and donated over 200lbs of fresh assorted produce to Calico Cat Thrift Shoppe (96 Kings Highway). Calico Cat collects food for Monmouth County's food bank, Fulfill.
The purpose of the Middletown Township Community Garden is to provide an opportunity for residents to grow organic produce, educate the public on planting food that respects the environment, improve our health and ecosystems, and provide a space where the community can grow and learn from each other. Although all plots are currently reserved, keep an eye out for upcoming seasons!
If you have extra produce that you would like to donate, the Calico Cat Thrift Shoppe accepts fresh fruits and vegetables on Tuesdays. Please call 732-671-0550 for more information.
