Our Mission

Greater Newark Conservancy promotes environmental stewardship to improve the quality of life in New Jersey’s urban communities.


About Us

Greater Newark Conservancy was founded in 1987 as an extension of Rutgers Cooperative Extension to beautify New Jersey's urban communities. Our programs have evolved over the years, but at our core we fundamentally believe that the natural environment is a big factor in a person’s well-being. The community thrives through our urban farming program, our environmental and nutrition education programs, and our high school internship program (the Newark Youth Leadership Project).
