Princeton's Edible Garden
Take a moment to view some of the unforgettable experiences last year’s first graders were able to enjoy in our garden. The garden affords the students enriching experiences that you just cannot get within the four walls of a traditional classroom. Knowing that, our goal for this year is to join the Edible Schoolyard Movement. Making the Garden-Kitchen Connection will allow for even more cross-curricular experiences for our students.
Nationally, the Edible Education Movement is being hailed as a vehicle to support students’ academic achievement by bringing to life subjects such as science, math, and social studies. Students also learn a sense of curiosity and dignity; the ability to work as a team to complete a job well; respect for oneself and others; and appreciation for diversity, patience; and how the ritual of eating together at the table connects families and communities.
As we grow the program to include not only the 1st grade and Gifted classes, but also the Visually Impaired students, our hope is that the garden and kitchen classrooms will “grow” along with our students to provide then with memorable educational experiences throughout their time at Princeton.
Thank you to our Partners in Education!
