About Friends of the Garden & Outdoor Education
Our popup garden and outdoor learning space (located at 94 Morgan Street in Jersey City) allows our youth to garden, read, learn, create arts and crafts, play games, explore nature, have science lessons, and enjoy the fresh air in a safe and secure area only open to the Club. Teen youth have the opportunity for paid employment to build and maintain the garden through our workforce development program. We’ve also had wonderful special events from a Halloween Festival to wreath-making at Christmas time!
Volunteers, staff, board members, and youth created this space, from building the learning steps to building and painting the raised beds to planting flowers and vegetables to painting the murals. They continue to cultivate and harvest the plants, many used for our farm to table initiative. Funding continues to allow us to purchase the equipment and plants to sustain and expand the garden. We’d love to be able to provide tables and umbrellas, awnings, and more!
