Sustainable Agriculture

Our experience with working in partnerships and coalitions provides us with a broad audience for community engagement efforts here in Elizabeth and throughout Union County. Groundwork Elizabeth is a member of Shaping Elizabeth, a city-wide coalition charged with the assessment and improvement of the community’s health through accessible programming and the development of a culture of health.

Through Shaping Elizabeth, Groundwork Elizabeth’s Green Team has the capacity to work with: the Gateway Family YMCA, City of Elizabeth, Trinitas Regional Medical Center, Elizabeth Public Schools, Elizabeth Housing Authority, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Proceed, the United Way of Greater Union County, and others. Data from Shaping Elizabeth’s work informs Green Team programming and provides a distinct platform for delivering urban waters programming to a wider audience.
