House For Sale w/ 2 year old Edible Forest Garden -- Metuchen, NJ

From: Frances S.
Sent on: Thursday, January 7, 2010 4:00 PM
The house is small-to-medium-sized, in Metuchen, NJ -- an old, charming town in North Central Jersey, which features an easy express train commute to NYC. ?The garden is still a two-year labor of love. ?It has received many truckloads of organic material, regular compost application, & much love. ?See below for an inventory of primary edible plants.?

If interested contact the realtor, Muriel Bell, directly @[masked] -- i leave the country tomorrow for 3 months & am not at all involved in negotiations.

Do mention your interest in the garden. ?There is a real chance that new owners might rather see it go back to being a lawn. ?The primary idea here is that the house go to folks who appreciate the garden -- and want a jump start on food security at home in the NY metropolitan area.

Purchase of the house?with Garden?comes with a complimentary garden orientation, site map & planting plan, & a crewed, spring-cleaning garden work day in late April.

Thank you for your interest & cross-pollination.
