Myra Rosenthal works in the ‘Garden of Eden’ near the Jewish Community Center soccer field on the Millstone Campus. The garden is a partership of the JCC and the Union for Reform Judaism. The community garden was originally planned to grow fresh vegetables for the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, but now also has beds tended by residents of Covenant House/CHAI Apartments that provide them with fresh produce.  In turn, residents have provided keen guidance on gardening and work to maintain the garden.
