Lend a hand at the “Giving Gardens” at Ross Farm

Several churches have partnered with The Friends of the Boudinot-Southard-Ross Estate and the Somerset County Parks Commission to grow fresh produce for families in need, donating to the Somerset County Food Bank and God’s Co-Op Food Pantry. Last year, volunteers delivered 1000 lbs of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs, and the partners hope to donate one ton this year!

You do not need to be a skilled gardener to join in, and parents can include kids and teens. To come and enjoy fresh air and sunshine, and loads of fellowship, please contact Jan Williams (rjwillia16@gmail.com) to be added to notifications of garden work sessions beginning in mid-May. Learn more about Ross Farm (Located at 135 North Maple Avenue, Basking Ridge) via the Garden link on their website rossfarm.org.
