Greater Newark Conservancy promotes environmental stewardship to improve the quality of life in New Jersey’s urban communities.

The city of Newark, and more importantly the people of Newark, are an essential part of the work we do at the Greater Newark Conservancy.  Together we have been able to create something special - gardens of hope that in many ways represent the people we marched alongside at the Newark rally and protest recently.  For us, like millions of others, marches and peaceful protests represent ideas that are important to us and should be important to every one - freedom, justice and equality. 

We truly believe we must be the change we want to see in the world. We stand in solidarity with organizations like #BlackLivesMatter and others that continue to stand on the front line of change that will lead to a peaceful, progressive and equal world. We are proud of our city for the peaceful protest that was held - however we know our work is far from done - to create communities that are truly equal. We must continue to do more as a country to be inclusive and not exclusive. Everyone has a responsibility to create a just and democratic society, including us. We need to talk more, learn more, heal more, and do more. It is our hope that our gardens play some small role in community healing, nourishment, and understanding. Thank you to our community - we wouldn't be here without you. Stay strong, stay safe, and know that we are here for you.
