Van Jones is Founder and President of Green For All
He is working to combine solutions to America’s two biggest problems: social inequality and environmental destruction. Launched at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, Green For All grew out of Van’s work creating a ‘Green Job Corp’ in Oakland, California, as part of a program at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. Van founded the Center in 1996, which promotes alternatives to violence and incarceration, including its successful “Books Not Bars” campaign that has helped reduce California’s overall youth prison population by more than 30 percent.

Green City Night was photographed by Bob Hughes of The Standard-Times for its Out and About section.
Here, New Bedford resident Claudia Grace shows a zucchini and a lovely tomato she grew using the mulch garden bed design shown at our May permaculture workshop with Dick Pierce.
Great for bumpers (including bike, moped and tractor bumpers), windows, signs, etc., our new bumper sticker proclaims the urgency of the need to get right with the ecosystem.
Thanks to the United Way of Greater New Bedford’s Mini-Grants program, Sustainable SouthCoast bought garden supplies to give away, supplies for meetings and workshops, and these bumper stickers! Thanks United Way and Claudia Kirk!
Get one at our next event. They’re free to Sustainable SouthCoast members (anyone who has attended our meetings) and 50 cents to all others.
