Our foundation first heard of City Green a little over a year ago and we were so delighted to learn more about this amazing initiative in the city of Paterson. We are always looking for ways to support organizations reaching out to youth in urban areas of NJ in math and science education. We were impressed with the extent of research and materials created by City Green and how accessible they make their information to school leaders for utilization. They have done all the hard work and preperations needed for curricula and seem so eager to share their love of the environment, science, nutrition, gardening, and healthy lifestyles in any way they can. We have seen the children in action and enjoying getting down in the dirt to produce an outside community garden they can be proud of. Keep up the great work CityGreen! We are happy to be a partner in your efforts for the children of Paterson!

As the Executive Director of the Andrew Goodman Foundation, part of my job is to identify people who are taking "creative and effective action to solve today's problems." That's why Jennifer Papa, Founder of City Green, received a "Hidden Hero Award" in 2010. Her program addressees the unequal access inner city residents have to nature and to fresh, local produce. Through programs that educate through experience, City Green is connecting residents of Patterson with farm fresh produce and providing an opportunity to combine social justice with environmental preservation and access to good nutrition.

Last spring, I visited a school yard with a new raised bed, a demonstration farm and also saw kids replacing garbage with beautiful flowers near a train track next to their school.

Help them to expand their programs. This organization is well run and providing life-changing options to inner city residents.
