Bloomfield Community Gardens
Fifty-four gardeners strong, the Bloomfield (N.J.) Community Gardens (BCG) consist of two community gardens – one at Pulaski Park and one at Milbank Park.  Our newer garden, at Milbank Park, opened in September 2019 and has been fully embraced by neighbors who enjoy growing; many of them are novices and we are all learning together.

We collectively donated 441 pounds of fresh produce in 2020 to local food pantries and have a BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) of 1,000 pounds donated during the 2021 growing season.  Our goals are simple: make the community gardens radically inclusive spaces, help address food insecurity, build more beds and increase our educational and outreach programming.
