Student volunteers and interns from REAL (Raritan Environmental Action League) and the community help to plant, maintain, harvest, and distribute the shares of “sprouts,” funded by donations from individual faculty, staff, students, and administrators.
Information about all RVCC gardens is available at http://www.raritanval.edu/community/forum/sustain/thematic_gardens.html.
