A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to partner up with the Jersey Fresh Farm to School and the Joy, Hopes, & Dreams Program through HomeFront. Each student had the opportunity to tour our farm and harvest their own head of lettuce that they then used to make their own Water Bottle Hydroponic System to take home.

We are looking forward to more partnerships with them in the future!

When Robbinsville Township mayor learned of Freight Farms in 2013, he immediately saw its value in connecting citizens of all ages to futuristic, sustainable farming.

Today, Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm continues to involve its community through engaging educational and volunteer programs while ensuring the produce grown in the container farm goes to organizations that increase fresh food access.

Learn more about the first-ever municipal Freight Farm below!
Robbinsville Township, the first municipality to install a Freight Farm, shares how implementing the vertical, hydroponic container farm into their Parks & Recreation Department has exceeded its goals and expectations.

The farm has specifically engaged senior citizens with town youth through volunteer opportunities where they are immersed in all aspects of indoor farming while learning about new technology.

Robbinsville is also impacting their community by donating fresh produce grown in the Freight Farm to hunger-relief and nutrition enrichment programs.

Learn more about Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm in our latest blog post --> https://hubs.ly/H0sX7td0
Robbinsville Township is the first municipality to own a hydroponic container farm, growing leafy greens and herbs that are given to schools, senior centers, and meal programs.

Although COVID19 has altered the town’s volunteering and educational programming in the farm, Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm coordinator, Hope Cahill has been leading virtual tours to educate citizens on the container farm's technology and the processes of growing fresh produce hydroponically.

Our garden ministry has so much to be grateful for! Cherry Grove Organic Farm and the Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm gave us seedlings! Wonderful chard and thyme and lettuce and two kinds of basil and fennel and tomatoes! The spaces in the garden are really filling in!

Smith’s Ace Hardware gave us fittings to fix our leaky hose hook up for the back gardens. We used more of the seeds from Smith’s Ace Hardware to plant our Three Sisters Garden (corn, beans, squash—the intercropping system originated by the Native Americans).

We gave out 60+ tomato plants to parishioners as part of our effort to expand out Community Anti-Hunger Garden out into the community. We will be posting our first days for accepting your home-grown or home purchased produce in the bulletin soon.

Interested in helping in our garden??
Come help at our next Garden Service Event on Saturday, July 20, 9 to 11 am. We will be harvesting, weeding, and doing other garden work.
Our SGG Community Anti-Hunger Garden has been blessed by two wonderful donations of vegetable seedlings. Rich Pieslak, a parishioner and longtime supporter of the garden, donated four complete flats of vegetable seedlings. Kyle Clement of the Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm grew and donated 100 Romaine lettuce seedlings. We are so grateful for our supporters! Please email priscilla.ellen.hayes[at]gmail.com or text 609-651-1544 if you can volunteer or donate.

Thank you for allowing Girl Scout Troop 440 from New Egypt to visit! They loved every all of it.
Thank you Kyle and the Robbinsville Hydroponic Farm for teaching our Girl Scouts (and their parents) all about this method of farming!! What an amazing learning experience!
Our lettuce that we “planted” a few weeks ago at the community day is still growing strong. We have harvested a few times and need to now 😁👍
Can the public buy food from here? and I'm assuming all organic with no GMO or pesticides, let us know how we can help spread the word
