Community Service Video Diary

Newark Community Solutions (NCS), the Greater Newark Conservancy (citybloom.org/), and Newark's Office of Sustainability (sustainablenewarknj.com/) have partnered with residents to turn Newark’s "Adopt-A-Lot" sites, vacant lots leased by individuals and community groups for $1 dollar a year, into the pride of the City. Volunteers, with the help of offenders sentenced to perform community service, clear the locations of debris; plant flowerbeds and help transform once neglected eyesores into community gardens and urban farms.
