Earth Day Clean-up

TCNJ2017 (1)
Student volunteers from The College of New Jersey assisted Ewing Community Garden members with our spring garden clean-up day. Many hands weeded, shoveled, mulched, cleared, and transplanted to get the garden ready for the growing season. A special thank you to the Ewing Township Department of Public Works for loaning us their tools.

Garden Tilling

Due to a broken tiller the township WILL NOT be able to till conventional plots for the 2017 season. We hope you will remember that the cost for a ECGA plot is nominal and that the township has been incredibly generous by providing free water, a port-a-potty, and tool loans. We recommend gardeners network with fellow gardeners and coordinate a shared rental.  Tillers are available for rent from West Trenton Hardware and Home Depot.

Fall Garden Clean-up


The Fall Clean-Up at the Ewing Community Garden would not have been possible without the help of the more than twenty College of New Jersey student volunteers who joined gardeners to clean out compost piles and weed and beautify the community areas of the garden. Teams of students were lead by gardeners, Bob Ellis, Dorothy McMillan, Pat Mulligan, Meg and Stuart Rich, and Karen Serach. Thank you to all the gardeners who worked to clean their plots and get the garden ready for winter.
