The township is offering garden plots at Freedom Park, which it has done since the park opened in 1997.

Located in the area of the park near the pickleball courts and skatepark, each plot is approximately 25 feet by 25 feet, but due to the large demand, plots can be divided into halves and quarters for those who prefer a smaller plot.

Water is available, but gardeners are responsible for providing seeds, plants, hoses and fencing. Plots will be assigned according to the order in which the applications are received. If you are a returning gardener, you are given the first opportunity to claim your space year after year.

For more information contact the Manager’s Office at (609) 654-2608 ext. 330 or email jbolen@medfordtownship.com.
