Union County Master Gardeners Help to Make a House a Home

Union County, NJ – Members of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners of Union County joined with other community volunteers to spruce up the landscape of two homes for the non-profit housing organization HomeFirst. The work included a new patio and flower beds, and the removal of weeds including poison ivy. Pictured from left are Master Gardeners Susan Devaney and Deb Berman of Westfield, Bridget Mracek of Mountainside, and Debbie Naha of New Providence. The Master Gardeners program, sponsored in part by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, performs a wide variety of community service projects in Union County.
