Tabernacle Elementary School in New Jersey has been certified as a Sustainable Jersey for Schools Silver School. The school requires all faculty and staff to undertake professional development training on sustainability, including best sustainability practices for maintenance personnel, how to teach sustainability for teachers, and green procurement for administrators. The school also created a new school garden, improving upon the small existing beds. The garden has been incorporated into classroom curriculums and each class has been assigned garden responsibilities. The food harvested from the garden will be donated to a local food bank.
