Have you ever been interested in growing your own produce? Haven’t had the time or don’t know where to start? Benjamin Rush Gardens can offer you the start you have been looking for. Community gardening is a great way to be active, learn a new craft, and see results that will not only provide a sense of accomplishment but a healthier lifestyle. If you are new to gardening, don’t be worried; BRG prides itself on a unified atmosphere. Neighboring gardeners and other garden experts are always available to assist a newcomer.
Benjamin Rush Community Garden boasts a variety of produce from a variety of people throughout Bucks County, Montgomery County, and New Jersey. Emphasizing community, everyone who leases a plot of land also contributes volunteer hours to maintain their own plot as well as any unused plots. By maintaining your land and keeping the 11 acres of plot clean, your family and friends can enjoy the atmosphere in other ways than just gardening. Plot owners are more than welcome to use their land to host friends, family, and pets. This is where having a garden in a state park is extremely beneficial. Not only can you provide your family with healthy “homegrown” food, utilizing all of Benjamin Rush Park will definitely enhance your entire gardening experience.
For a nominal one-time membership fee of twenty dollars, anyone can reserve their own plot and start the growing process. Each individual plot of land is 900 square feet. Get out there and grow! For more information visit Benjamin Rush Community Garden.
