The NJspots Team started the New Year with new ideas and goals in mind. Bringing together the community has always been an important part of what we do. This year we are going to be introducing Workshops in addition to more meetups throughout the year. Unlike meetups which are big gatherings in amazing spots around New Jersey, the workshops are going to be more intimate settings with smaller groups of people. The workshops will have specific purposes and topics behind each one so that way more people can learn about different things that they may find interesting. Some topics will relate to photography, types of techniques, professional skills for photographers, and more. (more…)
The Jersey Shore has always been recognized as the premier summer destination in New Jersey. But after the summer season comes to a close, the leaves have changed, and the holiday season is long gone, there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy the splendor of the shore. (more…)
Once the holiday season rolls around, the goodness in people really starts to shine. Organizations big and small start to collect toys, coats, mittens, and canned goods for those who are less fortunate. There are soup kitchens, warming centers, shelters, and food pantries to make sure no man, woman, or child goes cold or hungry.
Giving back to the community helps us all realize that the world is not such a bad place after all and reinforces our faith in humanity. The Mill Creek Urban Farm is one of those organizations that gives back year-round.
Besides giving us something beautiful to look at, The Garden State also boasts a bounty of Autumn produce, such as sweet potatoes, pumpkins, acorn and butternut squash, beets, leeks, kale, carrots, cabbage, apples, cranberries, and Brussels sprouts, to name a few! This recipe guide will help you support local farmers and serve the most amazing spread this holiday season.
I remember the feeling of awe as I held our “Cardiac Chargers” Heart Walk poster standing next in a crowd of over 2,000 people at 8am on a Saturday morning in early November. The morning air was particularly frigid, a cold front blew in unexpectedly the night before and many of us forgot to wear layers of scarves, gloves, sweaters, jackets.
Palisades Interstate Park — which stretches from Fort Lee to Alpine — has it all. You can hike all day up by the New Jersey-New York state line, or enjoy a casual stroll through a picnic area down by the Hudson River in the afternoon. Pack up your car or your backpack and head up to this versatile park to see what North Jersey has to offer all year round.
