Building Community: Growth of community health through urban agriculture, discovery based learning and equitable access to fresh produce. 

Join us for our NJ MAHTN Meet Up!  "Grow it Green is a non-profit that creates sustainable farms and gardens to address the need for food access and equity in local NJ communities. The Early Street Community Garden engages the public and partner organizations by facilitating access to the therapeutic benefits of gardening and an outdoor communal space. The Urban Farm provides hands-on educational programming for local school district students and grows tons of fresh produce to donate to organizations addressing the issue of food insecurity in local communities." 

PARKING: There is limited free street parking opposite the garden on Early Street. Alternatively there is public parking at the Dalton Parking Garage, located at 25 Cattano Ave, a 5 minute walk from the garden. ($5 for 3 hours).
