An Extraordinary Day
- Contributed by Diane Muenzen
April 27th, 2013 was an extraordinary day. Something really wonderful happened and it happened right before our eyes. A group of people in Long Valley came out to volunteer at the Washington Township Community Garden. Some of these people met for the first time. They shook hands, introduced themselves to each other and set to work. And that is when the something wonderful took shape. Seventy-one raised bed plots were built. All in ONE day, all by people working together. On April 27th, I learned what the “community” part of Community Garden is all about. It’s not just a garden; it’s a group of people, sharing a common goal, a dream come true, a COMMUNITY! Did you feel the magic?
We have many projects in the works for the garden. Another Boy Scout has volunteered to work on a large project for his Eagle Scout Badge and local Girl Scouts have projects in the works for us too! We'll post photos as they get added to the garden so everyone may see these wonderful contributions.
• Feel free to contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org with requests for projects that we need to be made for the garden.
