Bike JC Awarded 'Jersey City Green Award'

Thanks to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency for recognizing the growing community of Jersey City cyclists, through this award to Bike JC.

Our esteemed co-honorees included Grove Street Bicycles and city planner Tanya Marione-Stanton, who is organizing the city's Adopt-a-Lot Community Garden Program. Seven of those gardens are on the route for the Community Garden Tour this weekend, starting at 11 am at Riverview-Fisk Park.

Other award winners included the newly recreated city Environmental Commission, with a board of appointees who have expertise in environmental engineering and consulting, among other fields; Garden State Urban Farms, which will be setting up a large hydroponic farm somewhere in the city (likely Greenville) soon, in partnership with the Jersey City Food Co-op; and City Green, which has helped create gardens at nine city public schools, where kids eagerly await the harvest of each new carrot.
