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 NJ Transit 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 in 2022, please fill in the application below, print and send the completed application with payment to:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org when you have submitted your application.
Community Garden meetings are held monthly, at 6:30 pm on the First Monday of the month (directly before the monthly Green Committee Meeting). Please email us with suggestions, questions and comments anytime.
The garden is a place to learn and share information, and we are happy to offer Garden Talks in partnership with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Atlantic County and other local garden experts.
