Gardeners who have been waiting for a chance to join the Township of Union Community Garden can sign up now to save their spot for next spring.

The garden, located in Eleanor R. Erickson Park, began with just five beds. It has grown to provide space for 43 beds with support from the Union County Means Green Community Garden Grant program, a 2016 initiative of Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen.

Union Township Mayor Manuel T. Figuereido (far l.) met garden representatives Adrienne Kubicz (2nd l.) and Janet Sangekar (3rd l.) to tape a TV-34 program about the garden and its service to the community with (l-r) Jonathan Phillips of Groundwork Elizabeth, Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, garden representative and Adopt-a-Park volunteer Paul Lerin, and Freeholder Vice Chairman Sergio Granados.
