Schools Statewide Receive Funding for Sustainability Projects

on Feb 04, 2019

Grants funded by NJEA will benefit students with hands-on learning about sustainability

Today, Sustainable Jersey for Schools announced the 47 New Jersey schools and school districts selected to receive Sustainable Jersey for Schools grants funded by the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA). Eleven $10,000 grants and thirty-six $2,000 grants were distributed to fund a variety of projects including vertical aeroponic tower gardens, student green team capacity building, outdoor classrooms, innovative recycling efforts and more.

With this contribution NJEA has provided $1 million to support a sustainable future for children across the state through the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program. “Every day in the news we hear more and more about the importance of recycling and creating eco-friendly products, as well as the value of using sustainable resources,” said NJEA Vice President Sean M. Spiller. “Our job as educators is to prepare the next generation with the skills, information, and resources to become engaged citizens and leaders in our efforts to save and protect our planet. NJEA is honored to continue to work with Sustainable Jersey on this important program that directs resources into our schools.” In addition to the grant funding, NJEA supports Sustainable Jersey for Schools as a program underwriter.

“Our State’s students and teachers continue to inspire me with their passion for sustainability and commitment to New Jersey’s future,” said Sustainable Jersey Executive Director Randall Solomon. “We are proud to support their efforts with grant money to help realize their vision.” Proposals were judged by an independent Blue-Ribbon Selection Committee. The Sustainable Jersey for Schools grants are intended to help school districts and schools make progress toward a sustainable future in general, and specifically toward Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification.

Quotes from $10,000 Grant Recipients (Listed alphabetically by county)

"The $10,000 Sustainable Jersey for Schools grant funded by NJEA will create a Back to Eden garden, which is a method that uses an ecosystem whose dynamics can thrive, without the need for human intervention (i.e. watering or weeding). With the addition of deer fencing, pervious pavers and native plant species, this outdoor space will include edible gardens, paths, rain garden spaces and an outdoor classroom space, with flexible seating space for K-12 students and community to gather. We can’t wait to share this space with our Delran staff, students and our community partners who have been so supportive of our efforts." - Erica DeMichele, K-12 Supervisor of Science, Technology, Engineering/STEM Program Co-Coordinator/Sustainability Program Coordinator, Delran Township School District, Burlington County

 

"Kingston Elementary School, one of nineteen schools in the Cherry Hill Public School District, has been awarded a grant from Sustainable Jersey to create an outdoor classroom.  The project includes partnerships with Sustainable Camden County, Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, Cherry Hill Public Library and Cherry Hill Education Association.  The classroom will include raised garden beds, flexible seating, a mindfulness area and permanent stations providing information on local plants, trees and animals.  The concept for this project crystallized this year when Alex Caputo, a former Kingston student, donated several repurposed, decorated electrical spools to serve as outdoor tables. Alexa's idea for this Girl Scout Gold Service Project was based on her experiences and her belief that she would have benefited from an alternate classroom. So, for Alexa and all of the students at Kingston School who love to be outdoors, Kingston will now have a room with a view and a breeze." - William C. Marble, Principal, Kingston Elementary School, Cherry Hill School District, Camden County

We particularly aim to mirror the landscape of the Winslow Township, New Jersey community by establishing the following: a greenhouse, courtyard farms and vertical gardens. It is our wish to inundate our students with hands-on, real-world experiences. The grant will enable our students to further engage in both STEM and Environmental Science–based exposures while strengthening their connection to the community." - Stella Nwanguma, Principal, Winslow Middle School, Winslow Township School District, Camden County

Ocean City School District has made pursuing Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification a priority because the certification program provides not only financial incentives, but tools and training to help us implement sustainability initiatives that have community-wide impact and reflect Ocean City's commitment to healthy lifestyles and environmental stewardship." - Kathleen Taylor, Ed.D., Superintendent, Ocean City School District, Cape May County
