Introduction

Hi, I just moved to Jersey City a couple of months ago and am looking to meet people in the area who are passionate about sustainability and to collaborate on projects. I'm just about to finish up my PDC class from Andrew Faust on Dec 10!

What would help make Jersey City more sustainable, in your view?

This is a complicated question with an even more complicated answer! There are lots of things, I'm sure, but I would like to see more composting, more sustainable/passive buildings being built (there is a lot of new construction) and I just read a little about stormwater and CSO issues in JC so perhaps those could be addressed as well? Also more permaculture outreach and education would be helpful too! These are just some of my surface thoughts before heading to bed one evening!!

Have you taken our Welcome Survey ? This will give us a better idea about what areas you are most interested in so we can introduce you to people who have some of the same interests as you do, and who may even live in your neighborhood!

    It would be good to see you again, Ethan. It would be great if you could make the November meeting at SJC.

    Hi Ethan! It was fun to chat with you as I made a few trips to the recycle and compost bins at the Veg Festival today. I just joined GNYs and am ready to learn to live more green! :)

    Welcome Ethan! That camel in your photos sure is smiling :) Many of us were involved in creating a permaculture learning garden in Washington Park in Jersey City. Have you checked it out? Contact Jan Graff or Elyssa Serrelli about it.

    Nice meeting you as well Ethan. For sure, I'm at [masked]. Let's get together sometime after work, especially while the weather is nice.

    Hi Ethan. Thanks so much for joining. Welcome! We would love to hear about your volunteer work in Haiti and share our culture with you. Feel free to come to events and practice whatever Kreyol you know. I've had to push myself because I sometimes get shy about speaking. But speaking is exactly what will help us all to improve. I'm also looking for someone to host more formal lessons so stay tuned!
