Garden for Wildlife Series: Part 1 of 4
March 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Co-sponsored by the Monmouth Chapter of the NPSNJ and the Bayberry Garden Club of Brielle
Wildlife, including birds, bees, and butterflies, are declining at an alarming rate, but you can be part of the solution. Learn how to attract and sustain wildlife, what wildlife need to survive, and how you can be a part of the new movement to create wildlife habitat in your own backyard, simply by planting beautiful and resilient native plants.
In this part of the series, we will be viewing Wild in the Garden State, presented by the filmmaker, Sarah Galloway.
Wild in the Garden State is the story of two city transplants connecting to the natural world in suburban New Jersey. Sarah Galloway and her husband, Dave Comins, had no gardening experience but wanted a beautiful, ecological garden. Shot over ten years, WILD in the Garden State documents gardening missteps, lessons and experiences that go far beyond replacing a rectangle of lawn. This documentary short (30 minutes), followed by Q&A with the filmmaker, will attract new and experienced gardeners who want to spend more time enjoying the natural world right in their own backyard.
Upcoming programs in the series are:
- April 2: Gardening for Wildlife 101 presented by Kim Rowe, Native Plant Society of New Jersey
- April 23: Designing Your Own Wildlife Garden presented by Kim Rowe, Native Plant Society of New Jersey and featuring Kelly Balon presenting a case study of her beautiful garden in Brick.
- April 30: Creating and Caring for a Wildlife Garden presented by Deb Ellis, Native Plant Society of New Jersey
