Tenth Annual Community Garden Conference

The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Morris County are teaming up to present their Annual Community Garden Conference for the tenth year in a row. We can hardly believe that it’s been 10 years since the first conference was held and this year we are bringing back our very first keynote speaker, Dr. Laura Lawson!

The impressive list of session speakers, all experts in their field, will cover topics relevant to community gardeners, garden managers, and those trying to establish a new community garden. The topics for the 2020 conference include: Weed ID and Management with County Agent and Rutgers Vegetable Expert Peter Nitzsche, Straw Bale Gardening with a team of Rutgers Master Gardeners who experimented with this type of growing throughout the 2019 season, Early Season Vegetable Gardening with Virginia Lamb, Finding and Securing Funding Sources with Samantha Rothman, Culinary Herbs with Lindsay Napolitano and back by popular demand, Farmer Shaun Ananko on Succession Planting.
