Letting you know the City is hosting a Community Garden Tour of all of Jersey City's finest gardens. The tour is on October 23rd and starts at 11 am at the Riverview Community Garden where a van will take you to five other gardens. The list so far is Brunswick St Garden, Sgt Anthony Garden, Enos Jones Garden, City Hall Childrens garden, and the Storms Ave Garden. Bike JC will also be running a bike tour to compliment the van tour. If you're interested please email and I can have your spot reserved.

Additionally, the City in partnership with the Jersey City Independent is hosting the first ever Amateur garden competition for all you front/back/rooftop gardeners. You must submit 3 photos and a minimum of 100 words about why your garden is the bees knees. This can also be submitted to me or Emily the JCI garden blogger by email no later than Oct 15. Awards and winners will be announced at the Riverview Farmers Market on October 23rd.

Special thanks to the Riverview Farmers Market for hosting both inaugural events! And if you haven't checked out that market yet you should! Every sunday from 9-3!
