Open Gates Weekend July 14


 Explore the Positive Effects of Community Gardens Throughout Morris County

On Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., explore what’s growing in your local Community Gardens at the Morris County Community Garden Open Gates Weekend.

     The latest buzz surrounding food and health topics center on the growing number of community gardens across the country, as they foster civic engagement, offer support to local food pantries, enhance the quality of life for their participants, and greatly reduce their carbon footprint. Join the conversation, and discover the positive effects of Community Gardens throughout Morris County.

     Enjoy scenic garden tours, food tastings, and demonstrations, discover how to start one in your town, and learn about growing your own food. Highlighting the people, plants, and planting techniques that make these gardens thrive, this event truly showcases the beauty and diversity of Morris County’s Community Gardens.

     Admission is FREE, and no registration is required. This event is rain-or-shine, and is co-sponsored by The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
