Friends of Lifers Plant Collards

This week we planted our first outdoor collard greens of the year. We had help from the Friends of the Lifers Youth Corp, whos mission statement is “to provide programs and services that promote self-sufficiency for citizens who were formerly incarcerated or have a criminal record; and to develop programs that assist in juvenile delinquency prevention, individual development, and community improvement.” They were training on our Newark Beth Israel Farm Lot before they start growing their own Earthbox farm in Jersey City.  It’s shaping up to be a fun summer season!

    I’m looking forward working with you soon. Again, we have 27,000 sq. ft. @ 81 Garfield Ave @ Merritt St.
