Fresh! 

Watch the pilot for a new series in development on farms, farmers and farmers markets in the Garden State. And check out our behind-the-scenes photos of the taping and information on the markets and the farms on our website – greenernewjersey.org. The pilot for Fresh! is funded by Whole Foods Market, with additional funding and support from Archer & Greiner, Dana Communications and individual donors.

Megan and Jim visit the West Windsor Farmers Market to shop for the ingredients for a farm-to-table meal at Tre Piani Restaurant. Megan takes some side trips to Chia-Sin Farm, Stults Farm and Terhune Orchards, then stops off at Cherry Grove Farm to see how cheese is made. The program culminates with 50 happy guests enjoying the delicious meal prepared by chef Jim, who has graciously shared his recipes with us.

A Race Against Time 

On March 18, the first truckloads of sand were dumped onto Kimball’s Beach in Cape May County as part of an ambitious project to rebuild some the Delaware Bay beaches in New Jersey damaged by Super Storm Sandy. In this program, wildlife biologist Larry Niles shows the damage to the beach and explains how it will be replenished. Horseshoe crabs use the beaches to spawn and lay their eggs. The eggs provide a food source for thousands of migrating shore birds such as the Red Knot on their way to the Arctic. Both the horseshoe crab and Red Knot populations have suffered a significant decline in recent years.

This project is funded by major grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the NJ Recovery Fund (a consortium of private foundations administered by the Community Foundation of NJ), as well as additional funding from the NJ Natural Lands Trust and the NJ Corporate Wetlands Partnership.

The organizations behind the work: American Littoral Society; the Conserve Wildlife Foundation; the New Jersey Natural Lands Trust; the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife; the NJ Endangered and Non-Game Species Program; the US Fish & Wildlife Service; Middle Township; Richard Stockton College; the NJ Audubon Society; Greener New Jersey Productions; Delaware Riverkeeper Network; and the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences.

 

Open Spaces & Historic Places in Morris County 

Join host Megan Gunning as she hikes, bikes and explores these scenic and critically important green places that offer a New Jersey you might not know existed.This half-hour program featuring Morris County, NJ, is the first episode in the Open Spaces & Historic Places series.  GNJP filmed at national and county parks, gardens, a wildlife refuge, trails and historic sites in Morris County. These parks, refuges, historic sites, greens and other sites were preserved because dedicated and determined  individuals and organizations worked to preserve them.

Come be surprised by the beauty and variety of the wildlife of the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge Area that was to be paved over for an airport, which was stopped by local residents.  See where the telegraph clicked into life at Historic Speedwell.  Bike with cyclists through the historic Jockey Hollow section of the Morristown National Historical Park.  Visit a peaceful green in the middle of a bustling town square.  And walk through gardens bursting with native and exotic plants. This program is chock full of good places to visit from easy walking to more strenuous activity.

 Funding was provided by the F M Kirby Foundation, S Dillard & Adrienne Kirby, the S Dillard & Adrienne Kirby Philanthropic Fund of the Community Foundation, and Kim & Finn Wentworth.

These parks, refuges, historic sites, greens and other sites were preserved because dedicated and determined individuals and organizations worked to preserve them.

Let’s honor their work by getting outside and appreciating the sites.

See you on the trail!
