The bulbs will bring much needed color and beauty of this area of the municipal complex. Students, seniors and municipal employees will greatly benefit from this added attraction. 

 

City Green’s Dig In! program has long offered grants to create neighborhood farms, community gardens, and beautiful open spaces in New Jersey communities. The Dig In! program has now expanded to include resources for habitat restoration projects, tree plantings, and large-scale bulb plantings. These new projects seek to engage municipalities, community organizations, schools, garden clubs, and motivated individuals to make change in their local communities through greening and beautification projects. These projects use the beauty and enchantment of public plant and garden installations to inspire new pride in communities, support local wildlife, and change the public experience of community life. They offer community groups and municipalities the opportunity to participate in high-impact beautification projects that have far-reaching effects on communities and the people who live there.

 

“We are very excited our Dig In! Program now includes tree and habitat restoration grants”, said Jennifer Papa Founder and Executive Director of City Green, Inc,” we hope these grants enhance the quality life for residents as well as support local wildlife in these communities.”
