NJveg upcoming events:


Socially Distanced, Masked Walk/Hike + Takeout #12 – Monmouth County

With rain in the forecast for Saturday, we’re going with the rain date!  The twelfth in our series will be at Hartshorne Woods County Park (info) in Highlands & Middletown.  Let us know your preference as to a specific hike (there are over 14 miles of trails), and restaurant for takeout!

Monthly Online Meetup #6

Another opportunity just to say hello, or chat for a while.  A favorite topic is “what I’m eating during the pandemic”, but anything relevant is welcome.  A Google Hangouts Meet link and dial-in info will be sent to all who RSVP.
