About the Stafford Township Green Team

The Stafford Township Green Team was established in 2019, received its Certified Bronze Level in 2020, and received its Certified Silver Level in 2023.  The Green Team has completed over 30 Sustainable Jersey actions, resulting in 385 points, including:

  • Community Education & Outreach Events
  • Volunteer maintained and cultivated Community Gardens throughout the Township
  • Installation of EV Charging Stations at the Municipal Complex and Bay Avenue Community Center
  • Recycling Depot
  • Municipal Carbon Footprint
  • Prescription Drug Safety & Disposal
  • Backyard Composting Program
  • Stafford Township Farmers Market  

We invite the public to attend an in-person meeting or visit one, or all three, of our community gardens. Our Farmer’s Market at Heritage Park runs from June through mid-September with a number of local vendors and community groups.  Please consider joining us. We are eager to connect with our community members and organizations in our mission to promote sustainable living in our town.

The Green Team meetings are open to the public and meet on the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Stafford Township Township Council Meeting Room.
