Shady Games

The heat is on! But there are lots of shady spots here at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.

Grab a board game at the Front Desk and head out for a few hours of “unplugged” fun. Games include Wildflower Bingo, Bird Concentration and Gardenopoly (a Monopoly spinoff). We also have chess, checkers and backgammon.

Perfect summertime entertainment when you want to rest your body but exercise your mind.

July Jaunt to Chanticleer

There are still a few seats on the bus to Chanticleer on Wednesday, July 17th. Garden first, then lunch and a tad of shopping at the very trendy Terrain.

Pictured at right are some of Chanticleer’s famed containers. Register by clicking here.

Lavender Morning

This Saturday’s Lavender Morning wreath making class with Louise Hyde has limited space. Please register now and take some calm home!

The Pick of the Season

On Sunday, Chef Cynthia Triolo will be baking up a storm: peach melba cobbler, summer pudding, blueberry pie, mixed berry shortcakes: need we say more? Click to register.

Summer Squash Cooking Demonstration

At Grow, Cook, Eat (Wednesday, July 17th) we’ll be featuring zucchini and making zucchini pickles with a recipe from the Zuni Cafe in San Francisco. Register here.
