I enjoyed each of the classes I’ve taken there. I came away learning something new from each class. My favorite class was Gardening. I was a complete novice when I started taking the class and by the end of the year-long session I had grown all different types of flowers and vegetables. In fact, my 5-year-old daughter, Lydia joined me in class on Sunday mornings to help me plant and prune my flowers and vegetables. It was a great experience for both of us!
What’s your favorite thing about living in South Orange/Maplewood?
The proximity to the city, diversity and small town community feel. I also love the parks, libraries, restaurants, Maplewoodstock (never miss it!), and community pools.
