Excerpt:

Shaun Ananko is starting his seventh year as director of agriculture and education for Grow It Green Morristown, a nonprofit that provides fresh, locally grown food for Greater Morristown.

From two Morristown venues – the Early Street Community Garden, and the Urban Farm at Lafayette on Hazel Street–the organization pursues its mission of creating green space and educating residents about where their food comes from.

Ananko manages the Urban Farm, behind the Lafayette Learning Center, and runs its farm stand from June through October.

He also manages the greenhouse at the College of Saint Elizabeth in Morris Township, to grow plants to transfer to the farm in April.
