The Township Committee, the Environmental Commission, the Board of Education, the Springfield Garden Club, the Springfield Historical Society, business owners and concerned citizens have come together to support the Greening of Springfield initiative. The purpose is to introduce the community to the Sustainable Jersey program which Greening Springfield volunteers will implement.
The program is intended to make Springfield a more sustainable community which can be achieved through various actions aimed to preserve our environment, promote our local business, and enhance our quality of life. Towns that register are eligible for grants and other funding.
