Jersey City 3rd “Big Dig”
WPA will work alongside other members of Jersey City Parks Coalition and the City of Jersey City as part of “National Make a Difference Day” with the “Big Dig.” Last year’s Big Dig saw more than 18,000 bulbs planted in parks, entrances, and open spaces across Jersey City. WPA planted 1,000 bulbs along the chain-link fence on the corner of Paterson Plank Road and Manhattan Avenue. In 2014 we hope to plant another 1,000 bulbs.
