Matilda's Tea Party
Chocolate is on everyone’s mind as we approach Valentine’s Day.
At the 12th Annual Matilda’s Tea Party on Saturday February 21, children will learn chocolate history and trivia, eat a lot of it, and then make some chocolate treats to take home.
What fun! All to celebrate Matilda Frelinghuysen's childhood, spent here at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
Register on-line now.
Community Garden Conference
At this time of year, it would be nice to have canned or preserved some of this past summer’s bounty.
If you are interested in learning more about how to “Preserve Your Harvest,” then you will want to attend the Community Garden Conference on Saturday March 7.

Three Weeks Till The Flower Show
Our trip to the Philadelphia Flower show is planned just right. We leave after the rush hour and come home a bit late to avoid traffic on the return trip.
We want to maximize your enjoyment of the show!
You can bring a lunch to enjoy on the bus or take an hour out and visit the Reading Terminal Market. There’s a wide variety of menu offerings there – everything from soul food to falafel.
Register here for the Thursday March 5th trip.
