GROWING and SHAPING Perth Amboy!

GROWING and SHAPING Perth Amboy!

The Farmer’s Market has had a great start! Our Children’s Community Garden was an awesome addition which complements our Farmers’ Market. The children, families and volunteers who have helped throughout the process come back to clean up the garden and shop for fresh fruits and vegetables in the Farmer’s Market. Currently we are growing cucumbers, black beans, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes and herbs. The children are excited and awaiting anxiously to pick when the vegetables are ready. Below please see pictures of the planter boxes, farmer’s market and the beautiful mural painted by a local artist.
