EO New Jersey is proud to serve at America’s Grow-a Row, an organization that grows and gleans fresh, healthy produce that is then donated to food pantries, soup kitchens, crisis centers, and food banks all over the state of New Jersey. EO New Jersey members are meeting at Peaceful Valley Orchards Farm, 150 Pittstown Road in Pittstown, N.J. at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 11 to participate (add to calendar).
There will be an introduction to America’s Grow-a-Row, including history, vision and business insight. We will be harvesting from 10 a.m. to noon. Please eat breakfast prior to your arrival. Please make sure to bring a filled reusable water bottle, sunscreen and/or a hat, bug spray, gloves if you have them, and dress appropriately for the weather and to get dirty! We will pick in the rain and maybe wait out thunderstorms if appropriate.
