Greater Newark Conservancy envisions each and every individual in our community living healthy, productive lives in harmony with nature. We commit to centering equity and opportunity in all our programs and throughout our organization.
To advance this vision, we create opportunities for people to engage in community gardening and farming; to access locally grown, nutritious produce; to experience personal growth through environmental education, youth leadership training, and support for returning citizens; and to invest in our neighborhoods through collaboration with partner organizations to plant seeds, to grow community, to change lives.
Greater Newark Conservancy promotes environmental stewardship to improve the quality of life in New Jersey‘s urban communities.
We achieve our mission through our inter-related program areas:
-Environmental Education & field trips
-Newark Youth Leadership Program
-Paid internships for Newark High School students
-Community Greening & Urban Agriculture
-Farming and community gardening opportunities
-Environmental Justice & Job Training
