Why Kinnelon Has No
In the Spring of 2016, Kinnelon Boro received a $10,000 grant from PSE&G for a community garden, through the Sustainable Jersey program.
However, due to difficulty finding a suitable space, and opposition from the recreation community the grant was given back.
At that time, some members of the sports community were were smarting from the community resistance to artificial turf fields, and they vowed on social media not to allow a garden.
The Recreation Dept. did not welcome the idea of a community garden. Councilman Freda publicly asserted that "recreation means sports." When it was pointed out to him, that the dictionary definition of recreation includes activities other than sports, his response was
"The dictionary got it wrong."
