Nature Thru Nurture Program Helps New Brunswick Students Embrace Gardening

July 18, 2016

Nature Thru Nurture (NTN), a partnership program between Rutgers University and New Brunswick Public Schools, is bringing out students inner gardeners.

The program, founded in 2010 by two Rutgers professsors, also strives to help students grow in the “STEM” fields: science, technology, engineering, and math.

More than 100 students in the New Brunswick school system are currently involved in NTN program, meeting about twice a week during the school year and continuing to maintain the gardens during the summer months.

Rutgers Professor of Urban Planning and Policy Development Radha Jagannathan, and Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics Professor Michael Camasso spearheaded the project, with the help of a $50,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the city government.
