Tuckerton Seaport is participating in the OceanFirst Charity Challenge!

Today is the first day of the challenge and our goal is to raise $250 for our Community Garden. Help our garden get growing by making a donation of $10 (or more) online today.

The contest will continue until May 15th. Our total goal is to raise $3,000.


Tuckerton Seaport’s Community Garden grew out of the idea of bringing those in need together with those who want to give back.

Help Tuckerton Seaport’s Community Garden get growing! What better place for a community garden than your community museum? As recovery and rebuilding continues following Superstorm Sandy, we learned that although it has been three years 1,200 families currently receive help each month from the local food pantry. We have been committed since the beginning to helping in any way we can. We bring items collected at the Seaport to the Tuckerton Food Pantry each month, but more help is needed. Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum wants to continue to support our neighbors by launching a Community Garden, bringing volunteers together to plant and harvest, and then sharing the fruits of our labor with those in need. After all, New Jersey is the garden state. The Seaport will also host programs focused on healthy eating, recycling, and planting a garden at home. Here is your chance.

Make a donation.

Volunteer to help.

Tuckerton Seaport’s Community Garden will be planted this spring on the south lawn of the historic Captain’s House. Featured crops will include many indigenous to New Jersey such as the 3 Sisters grown by the Native Americans (squash, corn, and climbing beans), as well as those that have made New Jersey famous like tomatoes.
