Welcome to the new blog for City Green!
Located in northern New Jersey, City Green is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating the establishment of urban farms and gardens to enrich the lives of inner city residents, while cultivating education in public health, nutrition and the environment.
Much has happened since the founding of City Green in 2004! We have developed and implemented programs on community gardening and garden education in communities and schools across Northern New Jersey, produced thousands of pounds of food at our small scale organic urban farms, established seasonal farm stands and roadside markets at food desert neighborhoods, presented an abundance of workshops on nutrition and food justice, and formed strong partnerships with local non-profit organizations, religious institutions, schools, recreational facilities and community groups.
Through this blog, we hope to share fun and informative posts about gardening, nutrition, public health, food justice, and the environment. Furthermore, we will periodically feature stories about community members, farmers, gardeners, educators, youth and passionate individuals who contribute to the creation of sustainable urban communities, one seed at a time.
Stay tuned for our next update and find us on Facebook, Twitter and City Green Online.
