On March 13, Sustainable Jersey representatives announced that Bordentown City has been awarded a Sustainable Jersey Capacity-Building Grant. The $2,000 grants are intended to assist community Green Teams as they lead and coordinate the sustainability activities of their community.

The grant will help offset costs for the Bordentown’s fifth annual Green Fair, as well as other supplies and resources to support Green Team activities and projects.

The Green Fair, scheduled for June 14, is the Green Team’s main annual event, and will feature eco-friendly products and services, environmental organizations, electric/hybrid car displays, live music by local bands, recycling opportunities, food vendors, bicycle registration, plant swap, live animals, kids’ activities and much more.

On April 26, the Green Team will host a Rain Barrel workshop, which will be held concurrently with a family oriented, educational Stream Walk.

On the same day, Bordentown will be participating in, “Operation Take Back New Jersey,” a program intended to provide residents with a safe and legal method to dispose of unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs.

All of the events scheduled for April 26 will be held at Carslake Community Center located at 209 Crosswicks Road, Bordentown.
