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.
