The Marigold Project is a partnership between the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and Lazos America Unida. This dinner event is the final part of a series of events taking place during the weekend starting Friday, November 2nd in order to celebrate “El Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead, in order words, the Latin American version of Halloween).
About the Marigold Project: this partnership between the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and Lazos America Unida, a nonprofit community group, has led to the creation of a community garden to grow Marigolds for the Day of the Dead celebrations, an important cultural event for the Mexican community as a rallying point for local Mexican and other Spanish-speaking communities to foster a cohesive sense of community. The program promotes economic development, urban gardening, job training and education. These elements are creating intergenerational and intercommunity links, making the project a successful model for mutual respect, agricultural microenterprise and community health.
