School Awarded $2,000 Sustainable Jersey for Schools Grant


Blairstown, NJ  – Sustainable Jersey for Schools representatives announced that Blairstown Elementary School has been awarded a Sustainable Jersey for Schools capacity-building grant. The $2,000 grants are intended to assist school green teams as they lead and coordinate the sustainability activities of their school. 


Funds from the grant will be used to install a greenhouse.  Last year, the staff built a garden that teachers were able to use to supplement classroom lessons.  The greenhouse will increase the amount of time that students can grow plants and, therefore, increase hands on learning.  The staff at Blairstown Elementary School is excited to see how this program will grow throughout the years.
