Member’s Only New Year’s Party (6235) Edit

All the Presidents’ Gardens

Madison’s Cabbages to Kennedy’s Roses – How the White House Grounds Have Grown with America by Marta McDowell

Marta McDowell, a member of The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and a former intern here, will give a talk on her latest book, All the Presidents’ Gardens. Marta teaches landscape history and horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden and consults for private clients and public gardens.

In All the Presidents’ Gardens Marta tells the untold history of the White House Grounds, starting with plant-obsessed George Washington and ending with Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden. The 18 acres surrounding the White House have been an unwitting witness to history in which kings and queens have dined, bills and treaties have been signed, and presidents have landed and retreated. Throughout it all, the grounds have remained not only beautiful, but also a powerful re ection of American trends. History buffs will revel in the fascinating tidbits about Lincoln’s goats, Ike’s putting green, Jackie’s iconic roses, and Amy Carter’s tree house. Gardeners will enjoy the information on the plants whose favor has come and gone over the years and the gardeners who have been responsible for it all. The historical and contemporary photographs, vintage seed catalogs, and rare glimpses into Presidential pastimes will delight all.

Following Marta’s talk, please join us for refreshments. Then, we’ll all drink a toast to Superintendent of Horticultural Education, Lesley Parness, who will retire on February 1, 2017. Please make your reservation early, as seats are limited! The snow date for the New Year’s Party is Sunday, January 22.

Benjamin Blackburn Scholarship Lecture (6236) Edit

William Thomas from Chanticleer Garden, Speaker

Since 1979, The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum have supported horticultural education through a scholarship named for Dr. Benjamin Blackburn. Dr. Blackburn was a professor of Botany at Drew University. His involvement with the Morris County Park Commission began with his friendship with Henry and Robert Tubbs, whose property Willowwood, eventually became the Willowwood Arboretum. Dr. Blackburn published many articles and wrote a number of books on gardening as well as being the host of a very popular radio gardening program. He generously shared his vast knowledge and deep love for horticulture with many staff members in the Horticulture Division and with his countless fans – members of The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and area garden clubs.

Currently, the scholarship is offered to students in the Landscape Technology Program at County College of Morris. This scholarship allows interested students the opportunity to explore the different horticultural, environmental, and design studies offered through the accredited CCM programs. The increased knowledge the students acquire in the classroom and through hands-on programs at CCM will benefit them as they enter their chosen field in horticulture and landscape design.

The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and the Watnong Chapter of North American Rock Garden Society are pleased to announce the commitment of the Watnong Chapter to give $500 annually in additional funding to the Blackburn Scholarship award. The Chapter is motivated by the need to increase the number of well trained professional gardeners in this region. A representative of the chapter will participate in the selection of the recipient(s) of the award.

This year’s Benjamin Blackburn Lecture speaker is R. William Thomas, Chanticleer Garden’s Executive Director and Head Gardener. He lectures from his book, “The Art of Gardening: Design Inspiration & Innovative Planting Techniques from Chanticleer.” Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania is known as one of America’s most romantic, imaginative and exciting public gardens. Mr. Thomas tells the history of Chanticleer and outlines the design principles that guide this “three-dimensional work of every-changing art.”

This program is eligible for 2.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.

Save the Date - The Majestic Gardens of the Southwest of England (6254) Edit

Mark your calendars for June 2017 when the Friends will be traveling to gardens in the Southwest of England. As we traverse the counties of Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, we will visit an outstanding mix of both public and private gardens; including historic estates, cottage gardens and amazing subtropical and clifftop gardens. There is nothing quite like the Cornish coast!

More information will be coming soon. If you are interested in this trip, please send an email to Margery Ennist at mennist@morrisparks.net and we will let you know as plans develop.

Cost: More information later
