Last Call for Philadelphia

Our coach bus will whisk us off to the friendly islands (of the Philadelphia Flower Show, of course) on Thursday, March 8th.

We like to go a bit later in the day to miss the early morning crowds and stay a bit later. That way, you can take a nice break mid-day for a meal at the Reading Terminal Market or in nearby Chinatown.

Spring Rains Are Coming

Are you ready? Build a rain barrel with us on Tuesday, March 20 for catching those raindrops!

Blackburn Scholarship Tea

The Blackburn Scholarship Tea is fast approaching. It’s a chance to wear something that says “Spring!” and support this very special scholarship for students studying horticulture at the County College of Morris. Chair, Nicky l’Hommedieu is planning a tempting assortment of delectables to follow what promises to be a fascinating talk by landscape architect Andrea Fillipone.

You can register online or by calling 973-326-7603.
