Everything Great in the Garden State will kick off with conversations and tutorials with agricultural professionals, Bruce Crawford from Rutgers Gardens, and William Hlubik from Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County and the New Jersey Experiment Station during this virtual event.
Crawford and Hlubik will conduct agricultural tutorials on how to get started with home gardening using containers and small gardens and how to grow popular New Jersey veggies and herbs. Middlesex County Foodways will conduct a tutorial in English and Spanish featuring Chef Carolina Moratti, Co-Founder and Community Director of Sisterwork, and Chef Jerome Mangroo, partner at Mollaga Indian Grill and curator for Simply Spiced Meals. Jerome will follow the tutorial with a Q&A session with Bruce Crawford about gardening.
New Brunswick Community Farmers Market will also participate with a few prerecorded videos about what NBCFM is doing to provide food to the local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as information about their Market Ambassador program.
To round out the event, the fest will include live musical performances by local groups Powerlines and Bad Blooms. Powerlines is an expressive pop/rock group that got their start while attending Rutgers University and released their debut EP, Inertia, in 2016. Similarly to Powerlines, indie-folk duo, Bad Blooms, also got their start in the coveted New Brunswick music scene and released their debut EP, No, last year.
