Header  Hillsborough Community Garden
The Hillsborough Community Garden is a place where members of the greater Hillsborough community can come together to enjoy the outdoors, learn about gardening, get their hands dirty, grow their own vegetables and flowers, and donate healthy food to help neighbors in need. Last year we donated hundreds of pounds of vegetables to the Hillsborough Food Bank, the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, and the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. Gardeners donate extra produce they have grown and the garden hosts 4 plots known as "Carolyn's Share" dedicated to growing exclusively for this purpose (see sidebar).

The Hillsborough Community Garden was conceived by the Hillsborough Presbyterian Church as a way to use its land in service to the community. The church acts as a host and sponsor of the garden.

The garden will be openning for its ninth season in early April, 2021.

Carolyn's Share

Carolyn's Share at the Hillsborough Community Garden is the common area grown for the benefit of the Hillsborough Food Bank. Garden members are asked to volunteer some of their time at the HCG tending Carolyn's Share.

This garden was created in memory and honor of Carolyn Beacht. Carolyn was a long-time member of Hillsborough Presbyterian Church and resident of Hillsborough. Her welcoming smile and positive, generous spirit was cherished by all those whose lives she touched and has helped to make this garden project possible.
