HELMETTA/SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Spotswood High School teacher and resident Megan Mucci came up with an idea to help welcome spring, brighten spirits and provide families with a creative outlet in the two boroughs during the coronavirus shutdown. In conjunction with the Spotswood PTA, the Spotswood Recreation Department and Helmetta Mayor Chris Slavicek, Mucci is putting forth the separate-but-together initiative this week.

To participate, residents are invited to create a paper garden on a window or glass door. Participants should fill out a Google form using the following link by Sunday, March 22 and get decorating. Window or door gardens should be up by Monday, March 23.  A list of window gardens will be published by Tuesday, March 24. Families are then invited to follow social distancing guidelines and take a walk to view the window and door gardens in their areas. Questions about the Walking Gardens can by emailed to WalkingGarden2020@gmail.com.
