This year, 2020, is a big one for us—and we’ll be celebrating all year long! This milestone marks the 10 year anniversary of Calgo Gardens and The Barn in our current location.

It's no great surprise that Woodstock has influenced generations of music lovers and free-spirited youth. The event brought together over half a million people in celebration of peace, music, and love. Fifty years later, the spirit of Woodstock lives on—right on—right here at Calgo!
You’ve more than likely heard of book swaps and cookie swaps, but have you ever heard of plant swaps? Plant swaps are just what the name implies—they're get togethers in which the participants trade cuttings, seedlings, house plants, and plant knowledge. How great is that?
Are you ready for spring? We are! And we're kicking off the season with our annual Spring Art in the Garden event on Saturday, April 27, from 10am–4pm! This year we'll be featuring the work of over 50 artists, both old favorites and new to Calgo, all showcasing their carefully curated art and wares.
When a community joins forces, great things happen!
After hearing the about Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey's vision for the program Connections thru Music... an intergenerational program bringing music to those in our community with Alzheimer's and dementia, we at Calgo decided to support this important effort. The benefit Music in the Garden, held on Sunday, October 15, 2017, was our way to contribute.
We are overjoyed to let you know that over $12,000 was raised for Connection thru Music. Fran Pannella, the Alzheimer's Respite Care Program Manager, tells us that this amount “made a huge impact in making the dream of expanding Connection Thru Music [to Monmouth County] a reality…[it] will enable us to make the investment in staff time that is critical to the success of building and managing this program.”
