The Community Garden and Growing Dome
The 26-foot diameter Growing Dome provides a source of year-round organic produce and eggs to Eva’s Village, which are used to improve the nutritional quality of the meals served in Eva’s Community Kitchen and to clients within the residential programs. The produce also aids students in the Culinary School in learning how to prepare fresh, seasonal ingredients local to the NJ region.
Previously located at Wayne Auto Spa, the Growing Dome is being relocated in Spring 2017 to City Green in Clifton, NJ. City Green is a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating the establishment of urban farms and gardens in northern New Jersey’s cities to create increased access to healthy, local food while cultivating education in food systems, nutrition and the environment.
