BOGOTA, N.J. -- While the calendar says it’s the first full day of fall, the Bogota Community Garden is still bursting with the colors of summer.
“The garden still has most of the plants from the growing season still going strong,” said Nancy Guaman, head of the Community Garden. “Tomatoes, corn, peppers, pumpkins and cantaloupe, okra, cucumbers and more, are still growing.”
The Bogota Community Garden will host a fall clean-up on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 9 a.m., to plant fall flowers and prepare it for the upcoming season.
The garden is a place where Bogota residents can grow their own fruits and vegetables. It was initiated by Bogota Beautiful and is provided by the Borough of Bogota and the Environmental Commission with the Community Garden Committee.
The garden is located on the west side of River Road just south of West Fort Lee Road, on a stretch of land that runs along the Hackensack River.
