UNION, NJ – Young students from the Union Township Community Action Organization (UTCAO) showed their artistic side on Friday with some rock painting at the Vauxhall Community Garden.

The three- and four-year olds painted rocks with bright colors and designs.  The rocks are now displayed around the garden.  According to Ernestine Frye, UTCAO Executive Director, the children also had an opportunity to tour the garden and see all that is grown there.

The goal of the community garden is to offer the community a unique opportunity to bring generations together, to receive education on healthy eating, to engage in recreational events and to assist in beautifying the Vauxhall community.

The event was sponsored by the Vauxhall Community Garden Committee.
