Union County, NJ – Students from the Kean University Center for Leadership and Service bundled up and took rakes and clippers in hand last weekend to prepare Chatfield Garden for chilly weather. The enthusiastic Adopt-a-Park volunteers removed old vegetation to help ensure that the plantings overwinter properly. Chatfield is a formal garden located in Union County’s Warinanco Park, in Roselle. A favorite spot for photographers, it was originally designed for tulips. It is now home to perennials that flower all season, attracting butterflies and other valuable pollinators. Individuals and groups are welcome to join the hundreds of volunteers who participate in Adopt-A-Park projects every year.
