GSUF on Film

This past winter, talented filmmaker Jeff Zelevansky spent some time at the Orange Greenhouse. He captured some of the loveliest images of the greenhouse to date, and hopefully it will give you a small sense of what we’re all about. Thank you so much for your hard work Jeff!

Composting in Jersey City

Our local composting expert, Virginia Lamb, helped us and the Friends of Lifers build compost bins for our Earthbox farm in Jersey City.

Tomatoes in Jersey City

Over the last week we have been hard at work with the Friends of Lifers to get the newest lot ready for planting. We finally were able to transplant the first vegetables of the season here in Jersey City, a row of mixed tomato plants. This vibrant corner is on it’s way to becoming a green oasis in the city.
