KNS2 Healing Gardens is located at the Minnie B. Veal Community Center - 1070 Grove Avenue, Edison, NJ 08820
Kids Need Support 2, will construct new gardens in the new Rahway, NJ location in April 2017 with raised garden beds.
The gardens are designed to bring stress-reducing physical activities and play while gardening. Plot 1 is size 50 x 50 and Plot 2 is 50 x 40. The gardens generally produce over 1,000 lbs of vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers.
Some of the young users rely on wheelchairs and thus the garden is universally designed to accommodate the needs of all. A sensory garden is located in center of the garden to promote healing for children and disabled persons battling Autism. Weekly classes include garden design, planting, cropping, meal preparations, tastings and art. Join our Master Gardner and Seedlings in Training as we improve the food quality selections for children and those economically disadvantaged in the community.
