Brick will be getting greener (and healthier) this summer, with the township having come through on its plan to open up garden plots for residents where they can grow their own vegetables and fruits.
The Michael P. Fowler Community Garden has been built at 515 Herbertsville Road at the Haven’s Homestead historic park facility. Each plot is available to rent for this planting season for a $20 reservation fee. Water is available in the garden. There are two beds that have been specifically elevated for Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility.
Officials said Monday that an additional garden will be constructed in the vicinity of the Community Garden as a “pollinator garden,” funded in part by a grant from the New Jersey Association of Environmental Commissions Grant and local Eagle Scout candidates. The Pollinator Garden is anticipated to be constructed in the fall of 2022.
Those interested in reserving a plot can contact the Division of Land Use & Planning at 732-262-1041 for information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
