Brookdale Students, Neptune Partner to Launch Community Garden

LINCROFT, NJ (April 3, 2018) – Community members of all ages are invited to the grand opening celebration for Neptune Township’s new Division Street Community Garden, held Sunday, April 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 130 Division St.

The garden, owned by Neptune Township and run in partnership with a team of Brookdale Community College student volunteers, will offer 16-square-foot plots for local residents while growing fresh produce for Fulfill, formerly known as the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

The grand opening celebration will feature family friendly activities, refreshments, seed packets and planter giveaways for children, live music performed by Brookdale students and addresses by elected officials and invited guests. It is free and open to all.

“We invite all community members to come visit this incredible new garden, have some fun and learn how they can get involved,” said Brookdale student organizer Sharon Muller. “We hope this initiative will be a valuable resource for the residents of Neptune – and the community members served by Fulfill – for a long time to come.”
