The South Orange Elks Rent Party Garden

220 Prospect Street, South Orange, NJ

The South Orange Elks Rent Party Garden flourishes in the full sun of the front lawn of the South Orange Elks Lodge on Prospect Street and is a wonderfully unique partnership with the Elks. The 31 raised-bed garden has fed the community since 2012. Each season, the garden grows more than 2,000 pounds of fresh produce that is donated to local food pantries and other community initiatives, including Seth Boyden Shares.

The SOERPG is 100% volunteer-run, with weekday and weekend volunteer opportunities.
