Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“What are the benefits to learning how to garden?” (Asked at Saturday’s Healthy Children, Healthy Planet event at Riverside School.)


“I have 500 answers to that question. For children, I think it is the only way of the future that includes the health of their physical bodies.”

Dorothy Mullen, Princeton

“Instead of going to spend money to buy produce, you can have your own garden and it’s tons of fun.”

Winston Peloso, Princeton

“You can grow a lot of healthful vegetables in the garden.”

Russell Clark, Princeton


“The main benefit of gardening is getting that connection with Mother Nature and the healing properties that she carries. We forget and once we are in touch, we can feel a difference and are healed.”

Lana Jay-Spencer, Montgomery

Lola: “It is healthier to grow your own vegetables and herbs in your own garden. Then you can pick them fresh from the garden and cook.” Helen: “I think things taste better when you get them from the garden. It is also good for the environment.”

Helen Bennett (right) and Lola Finnegan, Princeton

“You can have your own garden and it is healthier.”

Jonny Eaton, Princeton
