Gardens at Forbes
Forbes College plays an integral role in supporting and promoting sustainability and food awareness on campus through the Princeton Garden Project at Forbes, a student initiative through the Office of Sustainability.
With a large demonstration garden on site next to the Forbes' masters house (79 Alexander) and a smaller plot and greenhouse along the Forbes addition, the Garden Project aims to cultivate a passion for sustainably produced food at Princeton and to provide the knowledge necessary for students to make informed food choices. It provides fresh, student-grown produce to the Forbes dining hall and offers a host of events from lectures to harvest dinners to outdoor movie screenings. Anyone is welcome to join in on workdays, morning harvests, and other events!
If you would like more information or have a great idea for a project or program related to sustainability and the environment please stop by to see us in the Forbes College Office. We have funds and support available to help promote good ideas related to food, sustainability, and the environment. Also, don't forget to come by Forbes for our dining series of "mainly vegetarian" menus where we feature items harvested from the garden as well as local, sustainable menus, and special guest lectures and film screenings.
Note, due to construction related to the new arts and transit neigborhood, the greenhouse will not be accessible during the fall 2013 term.
