Dreaming of Wildflowers

Nothing can replace the simplicity and joy of wildflowers. Their importance in the ecosystem cannot be overstated either.

Two experts in this field will share their expertise and experiences as we “Dream of Wildflowers” in the heart of winter. First Carol Gracie, author of “Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History” will lecture in the Auditorium. Then, we’ll move to the Classrooms for a hands-on workshop with Dr. Randi Eckel of Toadshade Wildflower Farm. Dr. Eckel will lead everyone as they plant a flat filled with wildflower seeds including: Winged False Aster (Boltonia decurrens), Tall White Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis), Blue False Indigo (Baptisia australis) for starters, plus 3 more...Care properly for these seeds and you will have a garden of wildflowers this year.

Class Filled. If you want your name to be added to the waiting list, please call 973-326-7603.

Register early as space is limited. Register by January 26.

This program is eligible for 2.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.
