Roxbury High School Awarded $2,000 Sustainability Grant

Roxbury High School was awarded a $2,000 Sustainable Jersey for Schools capacity-building grant funded by the PSEG Foundation. Four $10,000 grants and thirty $2,000 grants were distributed to fund a variety of projects including an outdoor science lab, sustainability curriculum, school wellness programs, hydroponic and aeroponic gardens, green walls, wind and solar energy charging stations, recycling and more.

Denise Glenn, RHS Science Supervisor for grades 6-12 submitted a grant proposal on Seeds of Sustainability: School Garden. The plan is for the high school to purchase aeroponic tower gardens to grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables for students and faculty that will be maintained by students in service learning programs and the environmental club. The garden will be used to teach various lessons, including science, sustainability, and healthy eating.

Glenn shared that, “RHS is proud to be a recipient of a grant from Sustainable Jersey Schools. Our Seeds of Sustainability (SOS) project will benefit the entire RHS community and will be placed in the student-dining hall. Designed to create a lush green and tranquil atmosphere these unique systems will provide year-round growing and access to healthy herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Students will utilize the produce in our culinary arts classes.”

She went on to say, “Additionally, the garden will be maintained by students enrolled in our transitional programs as they prepare for young adulthood and beyond. In addition to growing our own produce, teaching nutritional habits, and promoting environmental sustainability, we are preparing our students to become global citizens. SOS supports our goal of creating well-rounded, healthy, and informed students who understand the need for environmental awareness and sustainability.”

To be an innovative state, we must support our teachers, administrators and their respective communities as they shape the future of their students and schools for years to come,” said Randall Solomon, the executive director of Sustainable Jersey. He extended his congratulations to all of the schools and districts that received grants. “Grant funding will build capacity as schools embark on sustainability projects that directly benefit the students,” Solomon said.

The PSEG Foundation has contributed over one million dollars in funding to the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program. “We are proud to partner with Sustainable Jersey to support and help fund projects that provide sustainable neighborhoods, economic development, and STEM education to empower a brighter future. By supporting sustainable education in schools, we can help guide children and engage entire communities in the ways to help transform the environment,” said Ellen Lambert, president of the PSEG Foundation.

Proposals were evaluated by an independent Blue Ribbon Selection Committee. The Sustainable Jersey for Schools grants are intended to help school districts and schools make progress toward a sustainable future in general, and specifically toward Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification. Currently, 256 districts and 634 schools have registered to work toward Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification.
