Community Garden


The Hammonton Community Garden was established in 2015 with help from the Town of Hammonton, Atlanticare, and many other generous donations and with volunteer assistance from many!

The garden is located at 11th and Washington streets, by the NJTransit train station parking lot.

Garden plots are available for a rental fee of $20 each per season. Each raised bed is 12 feet long by 4 feet wide.

During the gardening season (April – November) we schedule monthly Community Workdays, to meet fellow gardeners and beautify our shared garden space!

All Community Garden members (new & returning) must attend a Garden 101 session. If you are a new gardener and have not attended a session, please email us. 

If you would like to join us this year, please fill in the application below, print and send the completed application with payment to:

Frank Zuber
Hammonton Town Hall
100 Central Ave.
Hammonton, NJ 08037

Checks should be made out to the Town of Hammonton. Please write Community Garden in the memo line. Please also email when you have submitted your application.

Regular Garden Meetings

Community Garden meetings are held monthly, at 6:30 pm on the First Monday of the month (directly before the monthly Green Committee Meeting) occur during twice-monthly workdays; dates are listed below. If you have a comment, concern or suggestion that cannot wait until the next scheduled workday, please email us.

Regular Garden Workdays

In an effort to keep this community space in tip-top shape, we host regular Garden workdays. Every gardener is expected to attend at least 4 workdays per garden season.

Special Garden Events

The garden is a place to learn and share information, and we often invite speakers to give Garden Talks to share their expertise in a particular subject. Past topics have included canning/preserving, reducing food waste through composting, hot sauce, growing hops, garden yoga, etc. Stay tuned for 2021’s lineup of Garden Talks!

Children’s Garden Workshops 

We also host a series of Children’s Workshop, open to children of all ages, regardless of involvement/membership in the Community Garden.  We hope to be able to invite kids and their families to the garden for more this summer.
