Review for New Jersey Tree Foundation Inc, Jackson, NJ, USA
The tree planting is a wonderful addition to our space which, just a few months ago was nothing but another vacant lot in the Ironbound section of Newark known as East Ferry. Decades of pollution from local industry, railroads, Newark International Airport, trucks, cars and even an incinerator have sadly defined our neighborhood. The 10 fruit trees added to the Urban Farm & Farm Market Space have brought a small orchard to this neighborhood! There are few words that could truly express how amazing that is for our community; to be able to sit and chat under an orchard tree, to be able to enjoy and literally, be nourished by the fruits of the community's labor that planted it and tends to it, to bring green to a city of asphalt and concrete are just a few of the ways the trees donated by NJ Tree Foundation have positively impacted to our community.
