The Woodbury Community Garden is a unique and beautiful place to garden. Conceived and founded by Woodbury resident Amelie Harris-McGeehan in 2005, the vegetable plots are surrounded by continuously blooming flower gardens with lakeviews and buffered by ball fields and woodland spaces. Located just off Red Bank Avenue, it is a lively and visually inspiring location for anyone to enjoy.
The Woodbury Community Gardens Association is dedicated to teaching sustainable practices that will help preserve the environment for future generations. Its main emphasis is on education and preservation.
