Appel Farm Community Garden
The Appel Farm Community Garden is looking for volunteers!
Do you have a green thumb?
Want to get outside and breathe some fresh air?
Looking for meaningful work to do with your family?
Excited about a bunch of Jersey Fresh veggies?
We are hard at work weeding the vegetable garden, harvesting has started, and we are thrilled to announce that the Appel Farm Community Garden will provide over 5,000 pounds of produce this year, including Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Onions, Corn, Eggplant, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Watermelon, Carrots, Potatoes, Basil, Parsley, with more to come!
Under the direction of expert gardener Elyse Elliott and assistant Cheyanne Yelle, community members can volunteer to work in the garden and take home fresh produce they harvest.
The South Jersey Land and Water trust designed and planted a pollinator garden to attract specific pollinating insects to help the garden blossom and produce a bountiful harvest. We are also growing wildflowers and hundreds of sunflowers, Appel Farm favorites! So in addition to growing food, we are filling our campus with beauty! Love Grows at Appel Farm!
Volunteers will work in the garden, take home fresh veggies they harvest, earn volunteer hours, and help Appel Farm feed families in South Jersey.
Nothing says Jersey Fresh more than tomatoes and corn, and they are growing at Appel Farm…
Volunteer shifts start June 15, 2020 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, weather permitting. Physical distancing guidelines will allow us to safely welcome four households at a time.
Please be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, gardening gloves, and masks to be worn if you are working within 6 feet of someone outside your household. Bring a picnic lunch or snacks, and relax on our beautiful campus.
