Gramercy Tavern and Neighborhood Friends

Here at Garden State Urban Farms we have been lucky enough to have countless individuals help us along the way. Our friends spread the word, gave advice, and even dug in and got their hands dirty. This year has been no different. Just recently some of our new friends from Gramercy Tavern in New York City stopped by, and some of our old friends from the neighorhood have been around all over again. Gramercy helped out by planting our heirloom Tomatoes, while the kids were sowing some of our bean seeds. The folks from Gramercy Tavern even took back some things to put into service that very night!

Environmental Activists Lend a Hand

With great energy, dedication, and curiosity, the Greater Newark Conservancy’s Junior Rangers paid us a visit and lent a helping hand. They spent a while giving the plants their much needed watering (they’re thirsty in 95 degree city heat!) and weeding, and even both at the same time. Thanks for all of your hard work!
