garden hosts farmersCaitlin Clarke, sustainability coordinator, Joe Rubenstein, professor of Anthropology, and the Stockton Community Garden hosted a garden barbecue for a group of Haitian farm workers attending the Migrant Worker Outreach program’s English as a Second Language (ESL) summer session to practice English and network with the Stockton student gardeners.

Jersey-fresh produce grown, harvested and cooked by the students was on the menu. A special moment was shared when the ESL students identified an herb similar to mint growing in the garden that had eluded the Stockton gardeners, explained Clarke.
