MRT’s Gan Mazon “Garden of Plenty” and Rutgers Master Gardeners Partner to Feed the Hungry

Tinton Falls: For twelve years now, precious garden space on the Monmouth Reform Temple (MRT) campus has produced and delivered thousands of pounds of fresh vegetables to local, non-sectarian pantries in Monmouth County. On a humid day in August, master gardeners and volunteers were busy, culling bright red tomatoes off the vines, weighing cucumbers and peppers, and sorting squash and beets for delivery to Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Monmouth County (JFCS) in Asbury Park. Led by long-time temple member and past religious school principal David Levinsky, also a master gardener, volunteers meet every Thursday and other days as needed during the growing season.
