Joining the Friends Just Got Easier!

Joining the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum has always been a good idea -- reduced rates at programs, special, members-only events and many other benefits detailed on our Membership page including the good feeling resulting from supporting this great institution.


The Friends Website Accepts Credit Cards

The Friends website now accepts credit cards!

Go to our Events Page where you will see "Add to Cart" buttons on most of the programs. Use these to register and pay for your reservations. You may find more information about the overall process on our PayPal Help page.

We are excited to offer this convenient way to sign up for our events -- no more looking for envelops or stamps, no hunting for the checkbook.

Added Sections for Cooking Classes

Great news!

We have added new, morning sessions to Cynthia Triolo's two winter cooking classes (Jan. 23rd Hearty Winter Soups and Feb. 27th Teabreads and Coffee Cakes). The new sections are from 9:30a to 11:30a.

If you are interested, reserve right away -- these classes book quickly.


Scotland Trip

As you probably know, as part of its 40th anniversary celebration this year, the Friends are sponsoring a garden trip to Scotland in late May and early June (tons of details on our Scotland Trip pages).

For us to maintain our fabulous pricing, we have to get your signup by no later than January 20th. If you would like to go but are planning on traveling alone and would like a roommate, we would be glad to pair you with another adventurous gardener. All our accommodations feature two twin beds.

Friends Email Newsletter

The Friends of Frelinghuysen sends every week or two an email newsletter of its activities to its members and subscribers. If you are not already getting it, you should go to our subscription form and sign up.

Past issues may be found under Resources in the menu at the top.
