(Sept. 16, 2010) — This week, The Leader reports on the inspired efforts of the Rutherford Green Team and the new community garden in the Borough of Trees (read more Page A1 in the print edition). The team of volunteers and public officials who have helped get this project off the ground should be commended for their determination. This most recent grant from the Sustainable Jersey organization hopefully will be the first of many. The global environment is a difficult issue to wrap one’s head around. These locals are finding a way to address these big issues on a small, albeit important, scale.
