Congratulations Dan and Arturos!

From the very beginning, Dan Richer, chef at Arturo’s in Maplewood, has been an avid supporter of the efforts at Garden State Urban Farms.  And even more importantly, he is an awesome chef at the helm of one of the most exciting restaurants in the state.  Recognition has come their way in the past, but just this week he was named a semi-finalist for the prestigious James Beard Award for Rising Star Chef in the entire country.  Hats off to you and your team!

Our Living Wall

We are very excited to introduce our first green wall to our greenhouse.  Right now it’s loaded up with leafy vegetables from our propagation tables, but in the future we will experiment with tomatoes, beets, radishes and much more. We’ve always been interested in finding innovative ways to grow as much food as possible in tight spaces, and we believe this is another fascinating possibility.  Take a closer look!
