Cedar Brook Trees Get TLC from 4-H Students

Union County, NJ – (l-r) Bryan Johnson of Linden, Brianna Mall of Kenilworth, Jennifer Schweikert of Kenilworth, Martha Garcia of Union, Mike Batkiw of Kenilworth, and Pauline Tardiff of Rahway, all participants in the Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program of Union County, mulched 25 trees at Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield on Saturday, May 4. Mulch helps the trees endure weather variations, enabling them to grow more quickly. The mulch and tools were provided by the Union County Department of Parks & Recreation.  4-H offers many popular activities for students in grades 1-12.
