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' college house (79 Alexander), 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! Go to the Princeton Garden Project page for current events and dates.
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 Flexitarian dining series of menus where we feature items harvested from the garden as well as local, sustainable menus, and info tables staffed by the Office of Sustainability where you can increase your food literacy.
