On The Road with Joe comes to Chatsworth on Oct. 18
While September has a few days of sweater weather, it's October where South Jersey really cools off from the summer. More than just the lack of beach days and finally turning off the air conditioning, the crisp Autumn nights also bring the first frosts, putting the Garden State's crops to rest. In this episode of Coolin' Off October, we're going On The Road to a Jersey classic, a cranberry bog, to wade (with waders) in the water and see how they keep those delicious cranberries growing as long as possible.
On The Road, a New Jersey Press Association Award Winning segment in 2018, is back in 2019 with more interviews, more adventures and more digging out some of the coolest places nature can bring in the area. Tune in as we take you through South Jersey, and the year, with theme months.
Twice a month, I'll explore each theme by going to a place and interview the people that make it unique within South Jersey. All the while unearthing how our local leaders live with the elements elements, give you tips on our environment and more.
