Major New Jersey Statewide Green Education and Training Campaign Gains Momentum

GenGreen™ has named Building Open Opportunity Structures Together, also known as BOOST, as a Featured Organization on the GenGreen Network, in the New Jersey tri-state region.

GenGreen chose BOOST and their fast-growing network of individuals, organizations, businesses, and institutions, for their outstanding efforts in the promotion of sustainable living through their commitment to community stewardship.

GenGreen selects organizations that they feel set an example in their communities. GenGreen chooses these companies to acknowledge them for their efforts in environmental stewardship. Being named one of The GenGreen “New Green Leaders” is a highly sought after title that GenGreen is pleased to give to the BOOST Network.

BOOST's innovative approach to communinty-building has been successfull in bridging the information gap between professionals in the field and the communities who are impacted by plans and decisions made by people who they have not had an opporunity to constructively engage.

We are thrilled to inform you that BOOST is launching part two of its New Jersey statewide environmental education and training program and part 2 of BOOST series of public awareness forums will take place on Saturday, July 12, from 11am until 5pm at Simply Natural Living at Serenity Plaza, located at 1505 Parkway Avenue in Ewing New Jersey.
