NBIMC The Beth Greenhouse

The Beth Greenhouse, located at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC) and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey (CHoNJ), provides access to fresh, nutritious, affordable produce to residents of the South Ward and surrounding communities.

The Greenhouse strengthens and expands NBIMC’s KidsFit nutrition education program by adding a comprehensive sustainable food systems educational component to the current Kindergarten – Grade 8 curriculum, and developing a wellness and food systems education program for high school students.

It provides on-the-job training, internships, and employment opportunities for local youth, persons with disabilities, re-entry participants, NBIMC Behavioral Health clients and recently returned veterans.

The Greenhouse supports health and wellness activities at the Reverend Dr. Ronald B. Christian Community Health and Wellness Center, and serves as an intergenerational “neighborhood hub and learning lab” where a diverse community can participate in gardening activities, exchange recipes, obtain plant starts for their home gardens and learn about the importance of good nutrition.

The Beth Greenhouse is located at the corner of Osborne Terrace and Lehigh Avenue.
