Preparation for the 2017 CFA Englewood garden is well underway because of the dedication of Smadar Shemmesh, our garden manager, and the expertise of Paul Keyes Associates.
Fresh produce is important to a healthy diet, but it can be very expensive and it has a limited shelf life. With the help of dedicated volunteers, growing the produce ourselves makes it possible for CFA to add healthy vegetables to our existing food packages.
All the produce from CFA's garden is distributed to local low-income families who rarely have access to fresh, organic vegetables. This summer we're growing yellow squash, pole beans, 3 types of tomatoes, 3 types of peppers, cabbage, collard greens, watermelons, carrots, beets basil and nasturtiums and marigolds to attract butterflies and bees.
Our thanks to Dwight-Englewood students under the guidance of Tasha Urbanowski and the team of dedicated garden volunteers for developing and maintaining the CFA Englewood garden.
Thank you to The Community Chest Serving Englewood, Tenafly and Englewood Cliffs for supporting the CFA Englewood garden. Your support provided the funding to continue expanding our efforts to provide fresh produce to local families in need. A special thank you to Shelly Wimpfheimer, Executive Director of the Community Chest.
Our thanks to Lowes employees for making and posting a new fence to protect the CFA Englewood garden. They also donated a shed and tools.
