“Newark’s Harvest, a citywide garden tour”

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD GARDEN TOUR CALENDAR

Tobias A. Fox, Founder of Newark Science and Sustainability, Inc. (Newark SAS), in collaboration with over a dozen gardens and urban farms across Newark, New Jersey, will present Newark’s Harvest as part of the City’s 350-year celebration during the week of August 15-20, 2016. This week long, historical garden tour and present day harvest will provide an opportunity for residents and visitors to become informed about the various agricultural spaces that exist.

This event will serve as a means to encourage healthy eating, healthy living practices, and environmental education. Through a series of workshops, presentations, and by reaping the benefits from the harvests of each of the participating spaces, residents will walk away with healthy, locally grown produce and a broader awareness of environmental stewardship.

This program is supported by a grant from the Community Foundation of New Jersey/Newark Celebration 350 Fund. 
This event is also supported by the following:
*Student Conservation Association (SCA Newark Crew and Members of the SCA’s NJ Sustainability Internship Program sponsored by PSE&G
*Richfield Farms & Garden Center (Clifton, NJ)
