Greater Newark Conservancy’s Urban Tree Farm Program in Newark, NJ is the subject of this brief 2013 film.  Generously funded by the Lower Passaic River Study Area Cooperating Parties Group, the Conservancy’s farms are being established to help reduce Newark’s carbon footprint, sequester ambient carbon dioxide in the surrounding neighborhoods and wards, and absorb stormwater runoff.  As the trees grow, they will provide a readily available source for new plantings in Newark, along streets and within public parks.  A job training component is part of the program, teaching ex-offender Newark residents the necessary skills that will enable them to seek employment in the growing arboriculture and nursery job industry.  The filmmaker, John Tokar, is a senior cinematography major at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.  Click on the link to watch the video.
