Urban Greening and Beautification
Gardens are not the only way to beautify neighborhoods – green spaces come in all shapes and sizes. City Green’s “Green Your City” program supports this idea by engaging community members and organizations in making a change in their local neighborhoods through urban greening and beautification projects. This can include the installation of flowers, trees, bulbs, butterfly gardens, or any other projects residents dream up to make their neighborhoods more beautiful.
Local residents can fill out a simple application to become a part of the Green Your City program and gain access to all the necessary supplies and resources needed to create new green spaces in their community including plants, trees, flowers, and other supplies.
Participating community members develop an appreciation for the power of beauty and nature in urban neighborhoods and the possibilities created by taking an active part in enhancing your community.
The Greenest Place in Passaic County Garden Contest
City Green’s annual garden contest has officially begun! For 10 years City Green has hosted the “Greenest Place in Paterson” contest to celebrate the vision and hard work Paterson’s green thumbs and the gardens they have created around the city.
This year, as we move our contest online, we are excited to extend the contest to gardeners throughout Passaic County. In these unprecedented times, let's share and celebrate our gardens as places for respite, joy and resilience! Contest details below.
