Jennifer and her team at City Green are truly inspiring. What they do in education and execution of community/school gardens not only beautifies our communities but also takes our children a step closer to farm to table living. In addition, City Green works with similar minded businesses to support them in their garden efforts and has built incredible ongoing partnerships with their work.

City Green is providing a series of Learning Gardens for local schools within our City.
It is a truly wonderful experience working with City Green. They are extremely professional and knowledgeable on what they do. They are always open to new and creative applications of their service.

We hope to expand our dealings with them in the future.

City Green is an essential partner for Jersey City's Urban Agriculture Initiaive. Their commitment has been a wonderful resource to the City and various schools throughout the City. They provide learning gardens at our schools, educational workshops for our community gardeners, environmental clubs, and guidance to residents who are starting farmers markets - just to name a few. They have also recently become a member of the Jersey City Buy Fresh Buy Local committee, and will be instrumental in helping Jersey City become a more food secure city and increase access to local healthy foods. I cannot say more honestly how vital the partnership with City Green and Jersey City to the City and its residents.

The Great!

In the amount of schools that they have impacted in such a short time. In the outreach that they have willingly provided to local community gardeners, University students who are interested in urban environmental issues, and starting farmers markets in food deserts.

I have been working with City Green for the past 3 years. they have provided us with the greatest opportunity to encourage our students to Go Green. With our environmental club we have undertaken several recycling projects in our 1200+ school. We have participated in 2 Harmony Day conventions. In our own school we hold a recycling convention for the 4th graders every year after testing. I hope to be able to take advantage of creating a garden next year at our school

City Green worked with the teachers and students at my school to help us develop an Environmental Club and a School Garden. They supported us through the entire process; providing us with teacher environmental/ garden manuals filled with creative enriching lessons. In addition, they conducted professional development for our teachers to show how the garden manual is used in each content area. They also, contucted model garden lesson for our student. With a matching grant City Green supplied us with valuable materials. City Green has been a great asset to our school as they were able to fill a void that was much needed for our school. Providing us with valuable extended hands-on learning opportunties.

kids in an inner city like Paterson, NJ do not get many opportunities to learn about gardening. They are consumed with the dangers of the streets or passing standarized tests. Our partnership with City Green has helped many of our kids experience the beauty of gardening. Thanks to City Green, our kids have created an amazing outdoor garden where they collect vegetables each season. Our kids look forward to this program and really enjoy what they have learned. Recently, a tragedy struck our Club as one of our young members was killed. We decided to dedicate our garden to this young man and with City Green's help, we will now have a cherry blossom tree that will bllom each year in his memory. They are aamazing and we love our partnership with them.

City Green has been working at the Main Library in Paterson for several years. I was somewhat skeptical when Jennifer Papa approached me, but we had two plots of dirt in our parking lot and I wanted these areas improved. Raised bed vegetable gardens have delighted and motivated the children in the neighborhood, as they plant, weed, water and harvest. And, on square plot of dirt was turned into a Story Garden, with flowering trees and sunflowers - and was the site of a series of summer storytimes, also coordinated by City Green. This organization - and their volunteers - have made a marvelous difference in our environment.

My experience with City Green was absolutly amazing. They designed a rooftop garden for a terrace at my school, provided all the materials and worked very hard with my students to build 12 raised bed on a terrace at our school. It is the first rooftop garden in Jersey City Public Schools history. Most importantly, they provided my students with a real-life experience I would not have been able to. They are truly an inspirational team!
