As part of our goal to help pollinators and wildlife have food, shelter, nesting, and a place to raise their young, using Native Shrubs, we worked with Sharon Hart at Busy Bee to sell garden club members with 10 different Native Shrubs and 7 different Native Perennials at a 20% discount. The plants are beautiful and thriving. Fifty Six plants were sold to 14 members.

In the fall of 2017, the Princeton Select board formed a new seven-member town committee, the Environmental Action Committee (EAC). This committee was formed in response to voter approval at the May 2017 Annual Town Meeting of Article 29, which called for an EAC that would create “an Environmental Action Plan that would advise and set goals and recommendations for the Town with regard to energy and environmental considerations.”
