The Farm at Green Village | Green Village, New Jersey

Plants at The Farm at Green Village, New Jersey


The Farm at Green Village in lovely Green Village, New Jersey, contains over 30 acres of trees, plants, flowers, and animals. 
 
They have an amazing and beautiful variety of flora and fauna, and everything you'd need for your garden or patio.

It is one of my favorite places in New Jersey  because it is pretty and peaceful. 

It's a magical place . . .

I am very fond of the beautiful swans.

Morley Safer and Modern Art

 


 I grew up watching 60 Minutes on CBS (Channel 2 in New York).

My parents would watch the show every Sunday night, and so I watched it with them. It is a show that has a style all its own -- just like The New York Times and The New Yorker. Mike Wallace, Morley Safer, "Gunga Dan" Rather, Andy Rooney, Harry Reasoner,  Point/Counterpoint -- I remember it all.
