‘Plot Luck’ event to celebrate summer harvest from Newark gardens

Newarkers who garden are invited to break bread with other local gardeners at Greater Newark Conservancy’s annual summer Plot Luck Dinner on Thursday, August 13 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Judith L. Shipley Urban Environmental Center located at 32 Prince Street.

Local green thumbs are asked to bring a dish made with ingredients from their gardens, and to share their gardening experiences with other like-minded community members. The Plot Luck Dinner is free for those who bring a dish to share, and $5 per person for those simply coming to enjoy.

Greater Newark Conservancy also helps would-be gardeners who would like to grow their own fresh and healthy food increase their skill sets: for a $10-per-year investment, the Conservancy provides space and expert assistance in urban gardening through its Plot It Fresh program. The program provides tools, soil, garden beds and seeds, and free on-site workshops and programs are available.

The Conservancy strongly encourages pre-registration for its Plot Luck Dinner. To register, or for more information about this event or other programs, to volunteer, or to make a donation please call 973.642.4646 or visit www.citybloom.org. You can also follow the Conservancy through social media: Facebook – @GreaterNewarkConservancy, plus Twitter and Instagram – @Citybloom87.
