(Woodbury, NJ) - Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Deputy Director Robert M. Damminger announced today that Rutgers Cooperative Research and Extension of Gloucester County will have three Seeds to Success Youth Farm Stands operating in the county starting on July 5th.

"This program has taken off and is expanding with a third Youth Farm Stand in Glassboro this year," said Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney who noted the other two stands will be located in Paulsboro and Woodbury.

"This innovative program that employs high school students to sell local produce to our residents is wonderful on many levels.
