East Orange YMCA

Community Garden

East Orange YMCA has a community garden where kids and adults can learn about how food grows and nurture their own garden plots. 

Free Public Workshop Series

July + August

Ages 18-up or if under 18, accompanied by a parent/guardian.

The City of East Orange and The East Orange YMCA are proud to present free workshops to help local urban agriculture, back yard gardeners and future farmers to hone and improve their practice! These are fun and friendly workshops in the community garden or at the YMCA building. No prior experience necessary. Come dressed for the weather and in garden-appropriate attire.
