In 2006 the Northfield Garden Club granted nearly $1,800.00 to Dan Hudson, Arlene Kjar and others to start a community garden. With funding in place, they approached the Northfield School Board who granted them access to a plot on school grounds just west of Greenvale Park School on Lincoln Parkway. The following spring, they got to work to create a successful addition to the community. Interested people can rent a space and enjoy their own efforts to garden. Excess produce is donated to the Food Shelf.
