Rockland Electric, Con Edison Volunteers Help 3 Sisters Farm (Pony Power) Prep Its Garden
To jump start the annual Earth Week celebration which begins today, volunteers from Rockland Electric Company, and its sister company Con Edison, joined the folks at Three Sisters Farm (Pony Power Therapies, Inc.) in Mahwah last Saturday for some serious garden work.
The volunteer crew spent the day assembling and filling raised beds with soil in the Farm in the Forest, a sharing garden that supports a hot meals program, Oasis in Paterson, and provides fresh produce to the Center for Food Action pantry in Mahwah. Last year’s garden yielded over 2,000 pounds of produce. The newly expanded garden has nearly double the planting space. Rockland Electric Company also donated the fence that protects the newly expanded garden.
