The "Healthy Community Development " Mini-Grant was established by the NJ Department of Health & Senior Services' Office of Nutrition & Fitness and the NJ Council on Physical Fitness and  Sports.  This office coordinates the state-wide   partnership for nutrition, physical activity & obesity. In 2010 we were generously awarded $10,000.  This grant created a schoolyard garden and 2 fitness clusters.

 The EJ Garden Team thanks you for your letters of support

The "Healthy Community Development" Mini-Grant's  project goals include;

preventing obesity and other associated chronic diseases by focusing

              on policy and environment to make healthy choices easier for NJ residents &

creating environments where healthy eating & physical activity opportunities are

              available, affordable, culturally appropriate and easy.

We would not have been successful without your written responses. 

As our "Digging in the Dirt" project starts to grow,  we will continue to value your input.
