All community members in Northern New Jersey should have access to fresh food and beautiful, open green spaces. City Green’s “Dig In!” program, funded by the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders, turns this idea into a reality by making the construction of new community gardens widely accessible to all members of the Passaic County community, regardless of age or economic status.
The Dig In! program provides a wide range of support and resources for the successful establishment of sustainable garden projects. By filling out a simple application, residents can become a partner of City Green and spearhead a new community garden in their own neighborhood. Community gardens beautify neighborhoods, provide fresh food and vegetables, and give local residents a safe place to gather and appreciate the wonder of the outdoors.
