  • Can you get involved?

    There are still many components to be included in the development of the GOLC. 
    Do you have a passion for gardening? Are you interested in expressive arts in nature? Do you build things as a hobby or for your work?

    Email Mrs. Guido at guido@stbenedictnj.org  if you would like to help in any of these areas.
