A little info about our garden:

The town of Hopatcong is very rocky, has a large deer population and a number of trees which creates issues for those who want to garden. In 2012, we built a fenced in community garden which has a lot of sun. We also have some garden beds dedicated to growing food for those in need.

We are looking for some volunteers from individuals, to any size group to help this 2019 season. The 2018 season was very rainy and produced a lot of weeds. We would like to spread as many wood chips as possible to be proactive with the weeds in common areas as it can pose a safety concern.

We also have a area outside the garden that has weeds which prevents us from seeing a path below the garden and for security reasons we like to see who is coming and going.

The community garden has an 8' fence around it with chicken wire to prevent critters from getting in but it appears the groundhogs have razor sharp teeth and have been chewing through it. On our bucket list is to reinforce it where needed. If you know how to operate a an office stapler, you can do this.
