In April of 2010, the Township Committee passed a resolution establishing a volunteer committee known as the Green Team. Since 2010, the Green Team has met monthly and worked on a number of initiatives, including:
• Installment of a water filling station at the high school,
• Construction of a community garden
• Launch of an anti-idling campaign
• Publication of "green" articles in the Municipal Newsletter and other local publications
• Disseminating "green" educational materials to residents during Earth Day and other Community-related events
Community Garden: One of the Green Team's largest achievements was the establishment of a Community Garden adjacent to the Senior/Community Center. The project was a joint effort of the Green Team, the Holmdel High School Eco Club, the Boy Scouts and the Township, and was partially funded by a grant from the Fiskars Tool Company and donations from Home Depot.
Certification: The Green Team is currently applying for Sustainable Jersey Certification, which will provide more opportunities for grants, which will fund other “green” projects for the town.
