Organizers Looking To Expand Community Garden in Princeton


We’ve definitely been seeing April showers recently.  That means pretty soon, there will be a lot of things growing outside including in Princeton.  The Mercer Street Community Garden was started 3 years ago.  It has flowers, strawberries, vegetables, and an apple tree.  Lori McKinney said the goal of the garden is to educate people on how to grow food. 

Organizer Lori McKinney said, “Lauren Morris who is the captain of this community garden has spent tons of her time and energy pouring love into this place and there was a wonderful grant called seeds of change that she applied for.  It was heart warming to see the whole community vote over and over again.  It was one of those voting grants.”

They did not get the grant but are still looking to expand the garden.  If anyone is interested in helping out, you can contact the Princeton Renaissance Project.
