Chester Township is proud to offer a 120-plot community garden where residents and others can grow organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers in a sunny, fenced location. The Chester Community Garden is located at Highlands Ridge Park, 100 North Road, Chester. It is open from spring until fall, and gives gardeners access to soil, compost, water, tools, and full sun. Gardeners can rent anything from a plot for one year, to several plots for several years. Plots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Rototilling is available at a small cost.
The community garden operates according to organic gardening principles. No herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, or non-organic fertilizers are permitted. On occasion, training workshops are provided through the Rutgers Master Gardener program. Beginning gardeners will find that more experienced gardeners are eager to educate and assist, and care for their plot while away.
