A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” — Angie

July 2nd, 2021 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and Councilman John Cochrane recently visited the Central Islip Community Garden to commemorate its 10th Anniversary. Dedicated community garden members from Central Islip plant and grow a variety of flowers and organic vegetables in the garden.

This year, garden members plan to implement a Grow and Give program dedicated to fighting food insecurity within the Town, by donating produce to local food pantries that has been grown within the garden.

The garden was recently given a facelift through a generous donation of wood from Local 28 Sheet Metal Workers. “For 10 years, this community garden has been cared for by these volunteers. Volunteers that really care about their community. What is so exciting, is that members will be offering a Give Back program this summer- providing the fruits of their labor for their community,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

Joining Supervisor Carpenter and Councilman Cochrane were members of the Central Islip Community Garden along with Nadja Farooq, Manager and Ryan Nitto, representing Local 28. The community garden is located behind the Central Islip Recreation Center.
