New Jersey's Largest Public School Garden
Our educational farm is managed by a small staff, part time interns, and community volunteers. All food is grown with “beyond organic” principles, meaning we don't use chemical or organic fertilizers. The land is worked mostly by hand, with the occasional help of machine tillers and mowers.
We are consistently putting into practice new innovations to make the farm more productive and viable to the community and environment.
What Sets us Apart?
We provide educational opportunities for the 5,200 school children of the Morris School District, as well as area colleges and our local community members. Colorful signs are used to mark the crops in English and in Spanish. Rather than long rows, diverse crops are grown in beds that can be easily accessed by children.
Designed for Learning
We donate the majority of our produce annually to local charities. The rest is sold back to the community at an affordable cost through our Farm Stands and Community Support Agriculture (CSA). We want to make local, sustainably grown food accessible to everyone!
