Oakeside Gardens & Grounds
The grounds of Oakeside have numerous early 20th century suburban formal gardens designed by Arthur F. Brinckerhoff (1880-1959), a New York City landscape architect and designer who was trained at Cornell University and was well known for gardens he created for large estates in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas.
The Oakeside Community Garden is located in the historic kitchen garden at Oakeside and features 36 plots, which are rented seasonally by local residents. Garden members grow a variety of vegetables, flowers and herbs. The site also includes extensive perennial borders which are maintained by volunteers. To learn more or to get involved, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
The community garden accepts donations of gently used or new gardening tools such as trowels, spades, hoes, rakes, scythes, watering cans, and wheelbarrows.
To arrange delivery, please contact the office at 973.429.0960.
Tax-deductible contributions to support the community garden are also very much appreciated. Checks can be mailed to Oakeside at 240 Belleville Avenue, Bloomfield, NJ 07003.
Oakeside is very excited to announce that the Bloomfield Bicentennial Committee has selected our location to place its Bicentennial Time Capsule. It will be placed in our Rose Garden, which will be revitalized by Martin O’Boyle Landscaping in preparation for the placement of the capsule. O’Boyle will add new plants and paint the arbors to restore the Rose Garden to its original glory.
