July 14: Native Flower Planting

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 emmaspett@mevoearth.org or call 201-566-6916. To RSVP for this event, simply send an email to mevovolunteers@mevoearth.org with your name, age, phone number and the subject line of “New Jersey Botanical Gardens Native Flower Planting.” You can also RSVP through Facebook.
