The Smith-Harker Community Garden
The Community Garden located on Wilson Hill Road, across from the Delaware Township Building, encompasses both ornamental flower beds and smaller, organic vegetable plots. The flower beds are for the publics' enjoyment and education while the vegetable plots are assigned to and tended by township residents.
The park-like areas consist of three major gardens, a long perennial border, an herb garden, and a butterfly garden. These areas are maintained by the vegetable gardeners who contract to volunteer at least 8 hours each growing season to weed and oversee the plantings. Some gardeners also volunteer their time by weed-wacking and mowing paths when necessary.
Most vegetable plots are 10 feet square and are planted, cared for and harvested by the resident gardener. They are free to plant what they choose while keeping their plots and surrounding areas organic and tidy.
