Residents can sign up to help create the township’s first community garden at the municipal building on Monday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m.
Volunteers are needed to help create the garden on April 5, 6, and 7 beginning at 8 a.m.
The garden project, spearheaded by sustainability advocate and resident Victor Alfieri, will give residents the chance to grow fresh, organic vegetables and flowers without the use of pesticides.
The garden will be located at the Van Riper-Hopper House museum on Berdan Avenue.
Alfieri successfully fought and won a court case to keep hens on his property. He is also heading up a project to help the local bat population thrive.
