Community Involvement

Community Resources

As part of our mission the JJC Sustainability Initiative Committee is committed to becoming a leader in the community by promoting awareness and education. We hope to provide a place of sustainability for not only our students and employees, but also for the community we serve. In an effort to support sustainability and environmental consciousness, please find both campus and community resources, events, and success stories.

If you or someone you know in the community is doing something green and sustainable, let us know by filling out the Tell Us Your Story form.

Goods such as fresh produce, specialty baked goods, artisan cheeses, organic, grass-fed meats, prepared foods, gourmet caramel apples, gourmet candy and much more have been featured at the market.
