Edison Teen Gardeners Win Awards, Assist Triple C Ranch with Historical Plantings

| 1 Comment

The G-Arden Club, a high school group associated with Edison's Terra Nova Garden club, recently won four ribbons for their entries in the photograph and horticulture categories at the New Jersey's Standard Flower Show in Edison. Four students from JP Stevens High School in Edison won with photos featuring a flower or garden with a water element. Nicole Fiore, 16, earned a first-place ribbon, and Dan Botto, 17, earned a third-place ribbon. Reshma Shiwdin, 16, a earned an honorable mention. In the horticulture category, Botto claimed a first-place ribbon with his indoor cactus plant.

 

Since 2006, G-Arden has worked to beautify their community, starting with the community garden at the Triple C Ranch in Edison. With a $5,000 award from the Supplemental Environmental Project, sponsored by the Edison Wetlands Association, the group will continue its work at the garden. They are also planting a "native plant garden," which will revitalize plant life common during New Jersey's colonial period.

Thanks for the link to the website. It is nice to see young people working with the land, and respecting historical plants. I plan on donating and visiting the gardens.
Thanks again.
