Groundbreaking held for Basking Ridge garden that will help feed NJ's hungry
A groundbreaking was held Saturday for a Basking Ridge garden that will grow produce to feed people in need.
The organization Community in Crisis, which battles opioid abuse, began work on the project at Ross Farm.
Volunteers planted flowers to attract pollinating insects and birds to help the garden thrive.
Eventually, the fruits and vegetables produced will be given to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and to charities that help veterans.
The event was organized as part of Roots to Recovery, a creative therapy program launched by Community in Crisis. The program helps people reconnect in recovery and improve their mental health and well-being.
