Events

Sustainable JC hosts a large number of workshops, talks and fun events that create awareness about various topics and educate the community – everyone is welcome.  Many of these educational outreach activities fall into one of our three primary CSC tracks –

  1. Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle
  2. Built Environment Energy Efficiency Opportunities & Water Conservation
  3. Urban Food Systems 

Most often, these activities relate to the Projects we are working on or Campaigns we are running.  For example, our Greener Buildings / Green Infrastructure advocacy work and SJC’s Rain Gardens +ART Campaign,represent two approaches we take to educating the community about the need for policy change in Jersey City, and we often address these topics at our events.

We also hold our SJC Monthly Meetings, which are held on the first Tuesday evening of every month from 7pm – 9pm at City Hall, Council Caucus Room #204.  These EAT, MEET, TALK programs provide opportunity to network over delicious local fare, listen to relevant Community Org / Expert Presentations and be included in discussion about SJC Business / Project activities.  All are welcome and is a great way to plug-in to the sustainability movement in Jersey City.

Summer 2014 GD +ART @ St. Paul’s in the Emerging Five Corners Eco District

Overlooking the Bergen Arches, this is a fabulous location with parking !  Come checkout the P.E.A.C.E. Garden, whose harvest contributes to The Sharing Place Food Pantry (also onsite) and the newly installed RAIN GARDEN.  St. Paul’s is a great sustainability demonstration site, also implementing a commercial solar array on the community hall out back – Bravo !
