On Oct. 8, more than 50 of the Shrewsbury Community Garden members, their friends and spouses congregated around the 9/11 Gazebo at Shrewsbury’s Municipal Center to celebrate the year-end closing of the Shrewsbury Community Garden.
The annual picnic table was set with a delicious array of foods, featuring items the group had grown during the past season in the busy garden.
The garden dates to 2012 when the first plantings were made. Through careful plot maintenance and developed knowledge about which crops thrive in the enclosed area, the garden plot owners continue to be amazed at their yields from their properly maintained plot.
The Community Garden has become of hub of activity, and these generous growers have been able to share a large assortment of fresh vegetables to Red Bank’s Lunch Break clientele.
The Shrewsbury Community Garden is fully supported by Shrewsbury’s Mayor and Council along with regular contribution from Shrewsbury’s Department of Public Works. Local resident and masterful gardener Pam MacNeill has served as chair of the Shrewsbury Community Garden Committee.
The garden is a popular spot and available spaces are always claimed quickly, so call Pam Macneill at 732-771-7721 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve for next year.
