Welcome to MEVO! We are taking action to create a better world for future generations. We are from the soil grown from the sweat and passion of young people uniting to form a movement in the Northern New Jersey region to create a world we want to live in. Since 2008 we have been working with thousands of people of all ages to build farms, clean up pollution, build trails, and empower people to engage with their lives and find fulfillment through meaningful environmentally sustainable work. We offer a variety of seasonal programs that give volunteers various ways to serve our communities and earth. Almost all of our programs can accommodate large groups, school groups, corporate groups, and more…
Ten years of volunteering — ten years of inspiring our communities to reconnect to the environment that supports our existence. Started by high school students our organization has grown rapidly and has expanded its reach to thousands of people each year. Its a big ocean out there but our ripples of volunteerism have an impact beyond just the people involved. By demonstrating ecologically sustainable practices and by remediating damages caused by destructive ones we are able to reach far into the future with long term benefits of our work.
