Also, Chambers Design of South Orange has graciously donated a Reel Mower to give away at the event!
Seth Boyden Demonstration School is having a sale of Native Plants, now until April 29th. Plants will be available in early May.
Native plants are well adapted to our ecosystem and have lower maintenance needs than non-native plants.

Learn how to install drip irrigation in your own garden at this hands-on learning event. Drip irrigation is the most sustainable way to irrigate a food garden. Using special drip emitters, water is dropped right at the roots of the plant without water being lost to evaporation or run off. Drip Irrigation is also easy to install and affordable. Come learn by doing as experienced drip irrigation installers help volunteers install the new drip irrigation system into Seth Boyden’s magnificent school garden, Strawberry Fields.
