Since 2010, City Green has recognized the beautiful work of Paterson’s home gardeners in the annual Greenest Place in Paterson Garden Contest - an amazing initiative that celebrates all of the dedication and effort that Patersonians are investing into greening and beautifying the City.

  • School Garden

  • Garden at a Business

  • Art in the Garden

All gardens will be showcased on social media. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges for each garden category. To enter, submit your garden photos and contact information in the form below, by email to, or by mail to 171 Grove St., Clifton NJ by July 31st.

We encourage all Paterson gardens to join our garden contest and celebrate your efforts with us at the in-person Garden Contest Awards Ceremony at the City Green Learning Garden in Eastside Park on August 31st (rain date September 1st)!
