Location: Fort Lee, New Jersey (Okay, it's on the fringe of our range....but at the FOOT of the GWB...close enough) What's in it: Various vegetables and flowers. We have harvested, beets, beans, yellow and green squash, cukes, peppers and we await the first blush on our many varieties of tomatos. Who takes care of it: Five gardeners including myself.
Favorite Garden Store: Our favorite garden store is local within walking distance to the building Metropolitan Plant Exchange. How does it benefit the community: I think we have benefited our building by turning a small unused area, an eyesore actually into something wonderful for residents and families to enjoy. The many children in the building seem to get a kick out of coming back and seeing things grow. Living in a 23 story high rise at the foot of the GWB without a terrace prompted myself and some neighbors to carve out space on our buildings property that is used to store building materials. Our management and super approved our plan they even helped plot out and turn over our dirt. There are five gardeners, growing various vegtables and flowers. Rain and an ingound sprinker system takes care of the watering and a steady diet of miracle grow has helped. We have harvested, beets, beans, yellow and green squash, cukes, peppers and we await the first blush on our many varieties of tomatos. Thanks Ms. Lewandowski Fort Lee, New Jersey
