Generous Green Thumbs Call Lawrenceville Their Garden

For the past three years, thanks to the gardeners at the Lawrenceville Community Garden, TASK has been supplied with hundreds of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables! We at TASK are very grateful.

What started out as a small personal plot at a community garden has literally grown into a 40 ft by 40 ft field of fresh produce that is grown strictly as donations for TASK. “I enjoy gardening,” stated Anne Ryder, coordinator of the garden donation drive. “At the start [of the donation drive] I would just mainly donate all the fruits and vegetables that I wouldn’t use. As time went on, I noticed that some plots still had food… and I just couldn’t let the food rot, especially in an economy like this.” The next growing season, she asked the gardeners of all the plots to donate any surplus foods that they would not use. “Now everyone chips in. It’s great and everyone is excited to help.”

Today, the Lawrenceville Community Garden makes two to three deliveries of fresh produce each week during the season, which runs from April to November.

If you happen to be a fellow Lawrenceville gardener, look for Anne and the yellow flags just north of the Lawrenceville School off on the north side of Route 206. If you are involved with another community garden and you are interested in starting a project like this, Anne has generously offered to share what she has learned about setting up this project. She can be reached at

Thank you again to these generous gardeners! We love being able to serve these locally-grown fresh fruits and veggies!
