Events overview for 2015


2015: Partnering - Alignment - Collaboration

In response to increased environmental awareness in central New Jersey - as evidenced by the sheer number of activities planned by like-minded organizations everywhere this upcoming year - BoroGreen has decided to reduce its own self-organized events, and support or participate in other events with same/similar values.

Here's a look ahead to our supported events for 2015. The events listing should update as more information becomes available. Please note that there are many more events than listed below. Please alert if you would like to add support for an unlisted event .
