North Bergen’s Lincoln School Annex launches new hydroponic gardens

The gardens were a gift from the Green Environmental Advisory Committee

North Bergen’s Lincoln School Annex has set up new hydroponic gardens, the township has announced.

The school received two sets of hydroponic gardens on Wednesday, October 5. The gardens were donated by the Green Environmental Advisory Committee.

The committee was established by Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners in February. Later that month, Tom Stamps was appointed as the Chairman of the Green Environmental Advisory Committee.

After the donation, Stampe showed how to properly take care of the new hydroponic gardens. Students were amazed at the demonstration he presented.

Sixteen classrooms each have a plant of their own for teachers and students to observe the rapid growth over time. One student from each classroom will be given the opportunity to moderate the garden once a week and progress in their gardening skills.

The North Bergen students were given demonstrations on how to use the gardens when they were donated.

The project was coordinated by the Green Environmental Advisory Committee in collaboration with the school’s Environmental Coordinator Rita Stampe and Early Childhood Education Director Esther Ortega. The committee meets once a month for public meetings.

The next Green Environmental Advisory Committee is on October 17 at 6 p.m. in the municipal chambers at Town Hall at 4233 Kennedy Boulevard. For more information, go to
