Join MEVO as we assist our friends at the gorgeous New Jersey Botanical Gardens with various projects along the grounds! We will be participating in a new program at the Botanical Gardens called the Second Saturday Gardeners! We will be planting native flowers and plants and help to make the NJBG a more naturally beautiful and sustainable place! Please remember to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty as well as sturdy work shoes or boots – we’ll be working in the soil! As well, please bring lunch and LOTS of water! We’ll be meeting at our favorite place, the Ramapo Valley County Reservation, at 9:30 AM and will carpool together about 30 minutes to the Botanical Gardens. We should be back in Mahwah between 3 PM and 4 PM. It’s going to be an amazing day! For questions, you can email Emma at or call 201-566-6916. To RSVP for this event, simply send an email to with your name, age, phone number and the subject line of “New Jersey Botanical Gardens Native Flower Planting.” You can also RSVP through Facebook.
