As one of the 10 winners of the 2016 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards, Groundwork Elizabeth stood out for their Come Grow With Us! Community Farm and Garden Initiative. In this week’s podcast, Jonathan Phillips, executive director of Groundwork Elizabeth, and Jackie Park Albaum, Director of Come Grow With Us! Farm and Garden, joined Bob Bostock to discuss this incredible organization, its current initiatives and the many partnerships – including one with DEP -- that make it possible.
