BOGOTA, N.J. -- A ballooned archway and rain barrels painted by high school students signaled the grand opening on Saturday, June 11 of the Bogota Community Garden.
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.
A total of 16 planting beds were installed in two rows of eight.
This was an idea first conceived of by Bogota Beautiful, and is now under the guidance of the Bogota Community Garden as part of the Bogota Environmental Commission.
For the first year the Borough of Bogota has requested only flowers be grown to reduce the chance of stray or wild animals using the garden as a food supply.
