A New Community Garden Grows in Plainfield  

GEC Garden

Union County Freeholder Linda Carter visited Grace’s Community Garden in Plainfield on Thursday to celebrate the construction of new garden beds funded by Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen’s Union County Means Green Community Garden Grants program. The new beds will expand the garden and enable Grace Episcopal Church to serve local residents with fresh produce for those in need, and to provide new education, outreach and community service opportunities. The grant program is administered by the non-profit organization Groundwork Elizabeth.
