City Green, Inc.
March 29, 2011
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.
