On Sunday, September 20, at noon, we harvested farm-fresh produce at America’s Grow a Row in Pittstown, NJ. All produce we harvested was given to those in need. This event was open to spouses and significant others, children, and grandchildren interested in doing a mitzvah. It was a NCJW Family Day.
Grow a Row produce is delivered throughout the state of New Jersey to food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, Free Farm Market℠ programs, faith-based pantries, and more. If there is a need for fresh, healthy produce, Grow a Row does its best to meet that need. Among the recipients of the food harvested at Grow a Row are the Interfaith Food Pantry of Morris County, the Community Food Bank and the Morristown Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center.
The farm is in beautiful country and we had a fun day in the outdoors in lovely surroundings. While what is available for picking varies, the range could be apples, peppers, green beans, cabbage, corn and more.
