Our elementary schools are home to two PSGC programs: Gardens & Educators and Garden State on Your Plate.

Kirsten Cluver, an associate chemist at Church & Dwight, Co., Inc., presented the Princeton School Gardens Cooperative an $8,000 check from the company's Employee Giving Fund. The funds will be distributed equally among the PTO boards of the four elementary schools to be used for edible garden education during the 2015-2016 school year. The Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund is a workplace giving fund which was established in 2005 to meet the desires of employees to actively support and participate in the good works of not-for-profit organizations.

On the day of the visit, our program featured broccoli leaves grown by Farmer Jess Niederer of Chickadee Creek Farm and Princeton University chefs.
