Libro has partnered with local businesses to bring a Community Garden to Watford!

Thank you to Warwick Township, Caris Home Hardware, Bebingh Insurance, JEG’s Garage, Watford Auto Parts, Watford Horticultural Society, the Mike Harvey Foundation and the Optimist Club for their support and generosity in getting this project started after a tough year.

Our initial thought was that the harvest would be donated to the local Foodbank, but we recognize that some food may be ready to be picked outside of the times that the Foodbank is accessible so, we would like to open the invitation to Community members to visit the garden and if something is ready for picking, take what you can use and maybe pull a weed or two while you are there.

The garden is located on Sunset Ave in Watford just south of Confederation Line on the right side.  We are also awaiting the arrival a lovely bench donated by one of our Partners and hope that we will have lots of visitors!

Libro Staff will visit the garden on Tuesday evenings and if there is an abundance of anything, we will pick it and deliver it to the Foodbank Wednesday mornings to be shared to those who access it.

We admittedly, had a late start at planting this year and a lot of rain to contend with, but we are still hopeful that we will have some success and use this year as an opportunity to learn and grow better next year!
