• It went into the greens that will be cooking in Grow, Cook, Eat – Cooking Greens on Wed Aug 21. Register by clicking here.

• And into the beets in the Cooking Demonstration: Beets Me! on Sun Sept 15. Register by clicking here.

• And finally, it went into those Chile Peppers, still ripening – so let know if you want a share of the hot, hot, hot harvest!



There is still time to see Preserve Greystone’s exhibit in our gallery which will be up all August.

Mid Autumn Moon Festival

After the rush of getting set for school – treat your children (grandchildren too) to the Mid Autumn Moon Festival.


The shadow puppet performance combines a traditional story, “Change-er Flies to the Moon” with hi-tech projection on our auditorium’s big screen as these production photos show.

Holiday moon cakes, Chinese teas, crafts and a fall plant tour in English and Mandarin complete the program.

Arboretum Leaves - Fall 2013

Your Fall edition of Arboretum Leaves will be in your mailbox or inbox shortly. We’re looking forward to seeing you this fall at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum!

What's in Bloom At the Arboretum

The Arboretum is overflowing with color and so too is our on-line What's in Bloom list, maintained by volunteer Phil Dahlen. It is updated every other week.
