Communities that Garden Together Grow Together!

Kenilworth Recreation summer camp children have been watering, weeding and maintaining the Kenilworth Public Schools school based garden. In the upcoming weeks a permanent sprinkler system, and plans to create an outdoor classroom, and courtyard around the garden beds will be developed. In addition, the high school will be receiving new exercise equipment. The camp children are so excited to help grow and harvest our very first crop. Stay tuned for the upcoming harvest!!!!

The program is supported by funding from Atlantic Health System as part of the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network.
