Building Community

As Fall approaches and gardeners scramble to get ready for it, FIGG invites Aprende NJHS students to help out. 

Eleanor and Kathy rejoice.  These two are avid gardeners here at at home.

Alan, is a master at mentoring youth.  Here they prepare a food bank plot.

Another team working on a food bank plot.

The Children's Plot is carefully tended by Aprende's NJHS members.

Pam, the ever present supervisor, guides the youth.

This is a very fulfilling experience for everyone.  The students that volunteer for this day of work obviously enjoy it, and the gardeners appreciate the help, especially those that manage the food bank plots.

Green thumbs all around.
