- Judea Garden is a community project that is supported by schools, churches, and businesses in Washington.
- The Garden has grown to help the surrounding towns of New Milford, Kent, Sharon, Torrington, and Waterbury.
Located in the Macricostas Preserve, the Judea Garden was created by the Steep Rock Association to provide fresh produce for members of the community. A combination of donations, as well as hard work from close to 100 volunteers, helped to kick-start the garden back in the spring of 2009. Since then, the garden has grown, harvested, and distributed over 20,000 lbs. of fresh produce.
