History

Since 2012 we have conducted workshops on urban farming, along with organized community events on sustainable living, nutritional education, ecological building, renewable energy, and eco-art. As part of our mission of creating self-sustaining communities, we have successfully turned three abandoned lots into community gardens. 

Through our ability of building local movements, we've brought individuals together in small and large groups for various programs and events related to environmental and socioeconomic issues. This includes our annual Sustainable Living Empowerment Conference and organizing gardeners and urban farmers to come together to help enrich the overall quality of life of residents. We've also increased the impact of tree planting and agricultural initiatives throughout the City of Newark.
