Get Ready for the Community Gardening Season in Ewing!

Registration for 2020 Garden Plots at the Ewing Community Gardens on Whitehead Road Ext. Begins March 2

Community Gardens Ad 2020The 2020 registration for garden plots at the Ewing Community Gardens on Whitehead Road Extension will begin in March.  Mayor Bert Steinmann invites Ewing residents to be a part of the “grow local” movement and to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to grow – vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruits, as well as community connections.

This opportunity is open to Ewing Township residents only and proof of residency will be required.  You must apply in person only at the Clerk’s Office on the appropriate dates as list below.  Plots are available at the nominal cost of only $5 each and you can purchase up to two plots.   

Each plot is approximately 16’ x 20’ and half of the plots are no till/organic.  Organic gardening methods are encouraged.  The Township Public Works staff tills and prepares the other half every spring.  This is weather dependent so the official opening of the gardens for the no-till section will be announced late in the season.  Since the organic half is no till, it is open to the gardeners year-round.  Amenities included site wide deer fencing, water, a porta-john during the growing season, and more. 

There is an active gardening organization, the Ewing Community Gardens Association, so be sure to meet your neighbors and get involved.  Regular site clean ups will be held.
