Scarecrows in the Garden

Few things say “Fall” like apples, pumpkins and scarecrows and all of those will be arriving at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum. Join in the fun and make a scarecrow to be “planted” on our lawn.

To make a scarecrow, bring your own clothing and accessories or use some of ours; we’ll have the forms and the hay on hand for stuffing. Scarecrow forms will be available for pick up during the week of October 7th for those families or groups that prefer to make them elsewhere. Deliver your scarecrow on October 19 between 1 pm and 4 pm.

Scarecrows aren’t the only things being “planted” that day. See Todd Pugsley, an expert pumpkin carver from Madison, New Jersey work his magic and we’ll “plant” his amazing pumpkins around the gardens, too. Participate in an apple tasting and vote on your favorite, make an apple craft, and join us for some delicious local cider and donuts to cap off these fun Fall festivities.

Scarecrows will be on display until November 2.
