Ready to SHAPE Perth Amboy!

The Raritan Bay Area YMCA is preparing for our farmers market starting June 10th and going through to the end of October. The Y’s Farmer’s Market is expanding community awareness for healthier life styles with fresh vegetables and fruits. The YMCA has also brought together community partners to engage in healthy food accessibility to the Perth Amboy community. With the help of our community partners, we are excited for the summer season and the implementation of a small community garden. Our preschool children and after school students will help plant vegetables, learn how to take care of a garden, and learn about the different fruits and vegetables being planted. This past weekend we partnered with Jersey Cares and hosted “Service Day” where the garden planters were built and prepped.
