Teaneck’s Community Garden Gets a Makeover

Teaneck is tending its garden, and some say it’s about time, reports NorthJersey.com.

The township’s decades-old community vegetable garden is getting a face-lift. With its mismatched fencing, chicken wire and over grown weeds, many say it’s about time.

The community garden — 93 plots available free of charge to residents — is at the eastern end of Lindbergh Boulevard, opposite the Garden Club of Teaneck greenhouse.

A committee of plot holders helped develop the renovation plan and is monitoring gardeners’ compliance with the rules.

Some of the rules include the following:

  • no weed overgrowth
  • no horizontal trellises
  • no plants exceeding 6 feet in height.

The vision of the garden is to create a true community garden such as those you would see on the outskirts of many European cities.

Hoping with the makeover, the rules will finally be enforced and we will create a beautiful garden as opposed to an eyesore.

The township will unveil the first dozen newly renovated plots on June 16, at 6:30 p.m. A master gardener will be on hand to give advice to plot holders.
