Greenable Woodbridge: Rain Gardens
Rutgers & Woodbridge Township Green Team just celebrated the ground breaking of the 8th rain garden in Woodbridge. This planting is especially important to the Rutgers team because they hit their milestone 50th rain gardens planted in the Central Jersey Area.
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!
Woodbridge Township garnered the 2020 Sustainable Jersey™ Silver-Level Recertification and Sustainability Champion Award for large-size municipalities for the 11th year. Sustainable Jersey provides resources which allow the township to continue to lead the state in sustainable and green initiatives. In the quest for the 11th championship award, Woodbridge Township competed against 457 participating municipalities, including 219 Sustainable Jersey certified municipalities and 64 silver-level certified towns, in the Sustainable Jersey competition earning sustainable points with 112 actions in 18 separate categories – scoring a record 1,240 points which surpassed the 2019 score by 50 points. And throughout, Greenable Woodbridge continued to advance many more sustainable initiatives and programs that serve to better manage the ways the Township uses energy and other natural resources at work and home.
Walkable and bikeable communities make it more convenient for people to know their neighbors. When people walk or bike instead of driving, less air pollution is the result and everyone can breathe more easily. Improving the connectivity of bike and walking networks will provide more direct, convenient and safe travel routes
