WILD in the Garden State
February 6 @ 7:00 pm
Wild in the Garden State is the story of connecting to the natural world in suburban New Jersey. Dave and Sarah
are city transplants with no gardening experience who want a beautiful, ecological garden. The documentary short
(30 minutes) will attract experienced and new gardeners who want to spend less time maintaining a pristine —
and unhealthy — lawn and more time enjoying the natural world, right in their own backyard. Filmmaker Sarah
Galloway honed her craft producing exhibit media for the American Museum of Natural History. Husband Dave
Comins is an architect who is inspired to garden for nature while creating a beautiful, park-like space. Shot over ten
years, WILD in the Garden State documents gardening mis-steps, lessons and experiences that go far beyond
replacing a rectangle of lawn. It’s a story of connecting to the natural world in suburban New Jersey.
WILD in the Garden State premiered at the Garden State Film Festival and has screened at the Colorado
Environmental Film Festival, the Environmental Film Festival at Yale, the Princeton Environmental Film Festival and
more. Featured at the annual meetings of both the Native Plants Society of New Jersey and Jersey-Friendly Yards,
Wild in the Garden State is still on-tour, screening with garden clubs followed by lively Q&A sessions.
