The RiverCOG community garden, located behind the Essex Historical Society's building on West Avenue in Essex, is currently in it's fourth year of existence. Each year, Regional Planner Janice Ehlemeyer arranges for those who will participate and prepares the grounds for the garden. An avid gardener herself, Ehlemeyer is the ideal person to oversee the community garden. For information about the garden, contact Janice at or call her at (860) 581-8554.
