The live civilly. Community Supported Garden Programs are the perfect combination of nutritional, educational and life sills programs. Using STEM (Science, Technology, Environmental and Mathematic) concepts live civilly leads youth and families in gardening initiatives that teach physical science concepts associated with biology and plant life as well as nutritional lessons with the fruits and vegetables grown.

live civilly seeks garden sponsors to help maintain its Community Supported Gardens throughout the growing season. Garden Sponsors are youth, families, small groups or individuals who would like to help maintain the gardens during a one week period. Garden sponsors are responsible for weeding, growing, watering and harvesting vegetables from the Community garden plots. All proceeds from these plots goes to one of the participating Moorestown pantries.
During the year, live civilly Garden Educators partner with classrooms at Moorestown elementary schools to teach the “how-to’s” of organic vegetable gardening. Garden Educators teach kids about seeds, soil, garden predators, sustainability and nutrition. Each partner visits the schools for approx one hour per month during the school year to show the students how to build a worm farm, plant and care for seedlings, and eat right from the garden. May and June are slightly busier as the garden begins to wake up! Garden Educators are welcome to help shape the educational gardening program with new ideas and projects. The goal is to inspire the next generation to plant a garden, care for the environment, and share the wealth of the garden with those in need.
Each year, as icy blasts still chill our bones, live civilly is already thinking planting season. Interested in being a “seed starter” to help provide starter plants to Community Supported Gardens or the Annual Seedling Sale? Contact us to learn how!
