Gearing Up

This last week we have had a real push to clear our lot in Lincoln Park and prepare the Earthboxes for all our seedlings in the coming weeks. Thankfully, some of our friends from Torchlight Academy came down to help out.

The 2009 Growing Season is Nearly Here!

Thank you to everyone for coming by and expressing your interest at the Mindful Living NJ Fair in Maplewood yesterday. It was great to talk to so many of you who share the same goals of a fresher, healthier, and more delicious way of living.

We have just recently been putting the finishing touches on our most recent plan, and you could consider the fair our first unveiling of it. In addition to our current efforts in which we provide some of the only access to great vegetables for many Newarkers and beautify otherwise unused lots, we plan to offer a Backyard Harvest, for those who wish to experience what Garden State Urban Farms has to offer, but in their very own backyard, rooftop, driveway, or patio. It’s a great way to have truly local produce right at your backdoor, and is a uniquely enriching experience for whole families. And it’s cheaper and more convenient than traveling to the supermarket! If you would like more information please fill out the following brief form.

Thanks for stopping by and you’ll be seeing more and more of us as the weather warms.
