Sunset Vista Community Garden & Learning Center, Inc.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit located at the beautiful Tuscan-themed Sunset View Farm in Andover Twp, New Jersey, offering a Community Supported Garden which includes an Accessible Garden, Onsite Learning Center and unique educational programs. Located on 20 acres of Sussex County farmland, Sunset Vista is known for its breathtaking views of nature, beautiful gardens, and self-contained nature classroom. We support and endorse organic practices.
OUR MISSION: Sunset Vista provides small scale organic agriculture and self-sufficiency instruction to individuals and groups to deepen their understanding of food, its source and its relationship to health, while preserving the environment, to inspire others to recreate those principles in their own homes and community environments.
