Public community garden opens in Burlington County

The garden offers free and sustainable food to people in Palmyra

At the height of the pandemic we saw just how susceptible the food supply chain is to disruption and the critical need to protect it. In Palmyra, Burlington County, a new community garden is helping to bridge the gap between farm and table.

Located next to the Palmyra Cove Nature Center, the garden is a collaboration between the Bridge Commission and Palmyra Borough and offers free and sustainable food to people in the area. And it’s open to the public so neighbors can learn how to grow their own fresh food and forge stronger ties. Any surplus vegetables will be donated to a local charity.
