Spring is not far off and it’s time to get involved in community gardening in Ewing. The Ewing Green Team invites interested residents to be a part of the “grow local” movement and register for a garden plot at the Ewing Community Gardens on Whitehead Road Extension. Returning gardeners can register beginning on March 1st. New applicants may register beginning March 15th. Plots are limited so come early.
There is an active gardening organization so be sure to meet your neighbors and get involved. Regular site clean ups will be held.

I am interested in more information about the program
If you are a new applicant to the site, you will need to wait until March 15th to apply. At that time go to the Clerk’s office at the Municipal Building (2 Jake Garzio Drive – upper level) with proof of residency and apply for a plot. The number of sites are limited and the Gardens get fairly fully subscribed each year, so I would suggest that you go as closely to the 15th as you are able.
Returning gardeners who had plots last year may sign up to get their plots beginning March 1st.
There is a great gardening association of the gardeners who work together on overall site upkeep, so we highly encourage that you get involved with them.
Hope this is helpful.
