Union County, NJ – Gardening enthusiasts gathered in New Providence on Monday to celebrate the official opening of the borough’s first community garden. In addition to the efforts of local volunteers, the 28-bed, fully fenced garden benefitted from strong municipal support. It also serves as an Eagle Scout project and it garnered funding from BASF, PSEG, Sustainable Jersey and the new Union County Means Green Community Garden Grants program, which is funded by the Freeholder Board and administered by the non-profit organization Groundwork Elizabeth.
