Our Green Team was awarded a $2,000 Sustainable Jersey capacity-building grant funded by the PSEG Foundation. Grants were distributed to 32 municipalities to fund a variety of projects including reclaiming paved surfaces for community gardens, protecting community tree cover, water conservation, green infrastructure, natural resources protection, park revitalization, promoting healthy lifestyles and green team capacity building. Bernardsville successfully completed a number of green team initiatives including education and outreach programs, the community garden, and flood hazard mitigation research.
"The work of our Green Team has been recognized by the community and surprisingly, new projects are being recommended that they were not aware of prior to receiving the grant." –Kevin Sooy, Mayor, Bernardsville
