HAMMONTON—During the meeting, Hammonton Green Committee Chair Amy Menzel said the Community Garden will be opening on April 20 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The garden is located at 11th and Washington Streets. Garden plots are available for 2024.

The seasonal fee for each bed is $20 each per season, plus a $20 deposit which will be refunded upon successful cleanup of the garden bed by the end of the season.

All Community Garden members must attend a Garden 101 session.

The Downtown Clean Up and Flower Planting event will be on May 4 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will meet at the historic train station at 10 S. Egg Harbor Rd. Registration is at 8:45 a.m.

The Green Committee will be having another cleanup on June 15 at 9 a.m. starting at the Hammonton library at 451 S. Egg Harbor Rd.

During the Hammonton Green Committee meeting, the Community Market (formerly called the Green Market) was discussed.

The Community Market will be held on the fourth Friday from June to September at Horton Street. The first one will be on June 28 from 5-8 p.m.

The 16th annual Green Day Festival will be on Nov. 2 from noon to 4 p.m. at Veterans Park.

There will be vendors with handmade, eco-friendly crafts and wares as well as local farmers with organic and sustainable produce and products.

Eric Schmehl, the owner of Fermented Food & Beverage Supply Shop at 27 Central Ave., visited the Hammonton Green Committee meeting on April 1 to share a list of new refill products the store will be offering.

Reduce plastic waste by refilling laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoo and more at Fermented Food & Beverage Supply Shop.

People can bring their own container and refill on items like laundry detergent, fabric softener, dish soap, hand soap, shampoo, all-purpose cleaner and more. All refill products are priced by weight (not volume).

The store will be open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, starting April 16.

“Right now we’re open four days a week, so we’ll be up to five days a week. One thing we realized these are products people are going to be coming in, wanting to buy on a Tuesday afternoon not necessarily just on weekend hours,” Schmehl said.

On April 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hammonton library, National Director of Local Content Brian Moore will be speaking about offshore wind job development and training and an overview of Local Content and the Clean Energy Exchange.
