C.A.N. Benefits from Local Gardeners

Hillsborough High School teacher, Ms. Melissa Juhasz and students from her summer class created Boro Blooms, a small business to help her students learn about growing and selling vegetables while practicing business skills.  

After selling their produce to other students and staff during the summer program, they decided to “pay it forward” by donating their remaining bounty crop of tomatoes, zucchini, green bell peppers, and a few cucumbers to the Community Assistance Network food pantry. 

Local gardeners and gardening groups have also been sharing their summer “bumper crops” with the Hillsborough Township Community Assistance Network. This week’s produce was provided by Hillsborough High School’s Boro Blooms, Hillsborough Presbyterian Church’s Community Garden, Somerset County 4-H Garden and Bee Club, Duke’s Farms Community Garden and individual residents with “green thumbs”.
