Elm Court and Harriet Bryan House located at 300 Elm Road, Princeton are affordable housing communities for the elderly and are affiliates of Princeton Community Housing. Their Community Garden was established in 2009 to provide residents with their own garden to plant vegetables and flowers. The Community Garden initiative was spearheaded by Mike Maloney, a landscape designer with Maspro Imagery who also designed the garden. The fully accessible garden is comprised of forty plots and includes several raised beds.
After years of partnering with Harriet Bryan House in our annual flower arranging workshop with residents (held each February), SBGC is growing the partnership and piloting a Garden Buddy program. The program allows 1:1 (or multiple:1) club members to work with residents on planting and maintaining their raised beds.
