Attention Seed Savers!


Attention all you seed savers. What seeds are you collecting this year?

The Virtual Gardener is saving tomato, cardinal vine, and honeysuckle seeds.

Use this neat print out to make customized seed packets to store all your goodies.

What special gifts these would make for your gardening friends and family!

Just a reminder

The African Violet Show is this weekend and Matilda’s Café is open weekends through November!

Plan Your Gingerbread Entry

And – now is the time to purchase that half price Halloween candy and plan your Gingerbread Wonderland entry!

What a great idea for keeping the kids busy on Thanksgiving while you are in the kitchen.

Use a pre-made kit, available at Village Shop Rite and many other stores or use our gingerbread recipe.

Entry information and recipes are all on our website -- just click the image at right.

Be a “Good Friend”

The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum know a lot about plants, but when it comes to insurance, we sure could use some help.

We are looking for some guidance in evaluating the yearly renewals of our insurance policies.

Might you have expertise in this field that you are willing to share?

If you have worked in the insurance industry and could meet with us once a year to review our policies, we would be very grateful for your assistance.

Please contact Margery Ennist at 973-326-7603 if you have the time and expertise to help with this important undertaking.
