Our Events

Patchen Community Square regularly hosts volunteer events, community events, and fundraisers. We also make our space available to neighbors for private events. Email patchensquare@gmail.com to discuss your event.

 

OPEN HOURS

We are open to the public from May to the end of October on Wednesdays 5pm-7pm, Saturdays 10am-6pm, and anytime you see a sandwich board on the sidewalk!

 

WORK DAYS

We regularly host work days that are listed on our events page where we tackle large projects all together. In addition, on Saturdays starting at 10am when you see someone in the garden, are casual workdays where tasks are handled on a smaller scale.

MEETINGS

Garden meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 7pm in the garden. Join us to learn our current initiates and get to know us!

 

NEW MEMBER ORIENTATIONS

Members new to the garden are encouraged to attend an orientation. Orientations are held on Saturdays from 10am to noon during the growing season.

"The garden is one of my happiest places. Sometimes when I meditate I close my eyes and can vividly see the leaves moving in the wind, smell the earth and vegetation, hear the neighbors and kids laughing on their bicycles in the background, feel the sun warming my neck. Even more so, I've met wonderful, warm, helpful people. It feels good to belong in such a community."

- Brian, Garden Member
