Groundwork Elizabeth is proud to organize and take part in of a number of different events throughout the year.

Groundwork Elizabeth Winter-Green Gala

Groundwork Elizabeth’s Annual Winter-Green Gala celebrates a broad assortment of community and business leaders who support building a sustainable community with environmental improvements, volunteer and community service, urban agriculture and advocacy, fostering a better quality of life where we work.

The evening event features cocktails, dinner, music, silent auction items, entertainment and updates of our programs, as we work with the public and private sectors and the community at large to “Change Places and Change Lives“.
