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 !

Upcoming details about all of SJC events will be posted on the Home page of our website, our Fan Page, Linkedin and are Tweeted; also feel free to join our Meetup and Facebook communities to stay in touch.

Details for ongoing event series will be updated each month, closer to the event date.

April 7th Topic – Introduction To Permaculture & Community Project Design

Permaculture is a design tool and framework for creating ecologically sound spaces and communities. Through low-tech applications that go beyond gardening and food harvesting, permaculture uses a whole-systems approach to show the connections between people and the earth. Inherent in permaculture are a collection of sustainability practices and techniques that can easily be applied to everyday life.

SJC’s new partnership with Beyond Organic Design (BOD) brings lead educators Monica Ibacache and Rachel Blalock to Jersey City to spearhead our Permaculture For Kids! initiative and future community education workshops on Permaculture.  Learn more about this whole systems design framework which is applicable to ALL COMMUNITY PROJECTS.

Open Meeting – all are welcome including Parents & Teachers.

Last month’s event details and general information about our Monthly Meetings below –

March 3rd Topic – Communications Campaign About Sustainability In Jersey City

Building on last month’s discussion, we are dedicating tonite’s meeting to those who wish to join SJC in concerted effort this year to GET THE WORD OUT! on Sustainability.  There is a real need for more education and communication about sustainability topics and resiliency planning amongst community stakeholders and SJC is building up its Communications Team (MANY PEOPLE NEEDED) to fill this gap.

Businesses are interested to become greener, the School District has committed to more sustainability efforts and Parents are asking for guidance on home / neighborhood actions they can take – we need to mobilize!

If you are savvy with social media, we need you; if you are willing to attend one of the public municipal meetins (City Council, Planning Board, Zoning Board, Environmental Commission, JC Redevelopment Agency, JC Municipal Utilities Authority) and share your meeting notes, we need you; if you are facile with wordpress / can help rework bits of our website platform, we need you; if you like to blog post we need you; if you have experience on home, work or community greening efforts that you are willing to teach others about, we need you.

This will be a nite of tactical planning, teaming and guerilla assignments !
