Community Service Diary - Garside Street

Newark Community Solutions (NCS), the Greater Newark Conservancy (, and Newark's Office of Sustainability ( have partnered with residents to turn Newark’s "Adopt-A-Lot" sites, vacant lots leased by individuals and community groups for $1 dollar a year, into the pride of the City. Volunteers, with the help of offenders sentenced to perform community service, clear the locations of debris; plant flowerbeds and help transform once neglected eyesores into community gardens and urban farms. The pictures above are from two gardens in Newark's North Ward.
