Bee Movie

Take a couple of hours out from running errands and do something for the planet: watch this movie. It's free and we have tasty snacks to sell. Sun Oct 23rd. Afterwards, you can see the newly installed pumpkin exhibit and ponder the fact that without bees there would be no pumpkins.

Call 973-326-7603 and tell us you're coming. Children 9+ can see and understand this movie.

edit: children 9+ should see and understand this movie.


Lesley promises not to set the fire alarm off again with her garlic bread, but, some of the garlic varieties we have to sell could set the alarm off all by themselves.

If you've never planted garlic, this class has everything you need to know. Buy a head of garlic this year and have 8 next year. This is the best return on any investment you will make this year!

Limited space and limited garlic to sell -- register now! Sat Nov 5th.


Artist Nelson Hancock has been shopping. His old Volvo station wagon was stuffed with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes.

On Sunday Oct 23rd, this Brooklyn-based photographer/cultural anthropologist/curcubit affictionado works his magic with the objects of his affection.

Refer to this issue of virtual gardener at, under "resources" for a preview of his plans. Kids -- come in costume and get a treat!
