Inspiration for Your Jersey-Friendly Yard

“Save the Date” for the second annual Jersey-Friendly Yards conference, to be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018, from 8:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Ocean County College, Gateway Building, Toms River, New Jersey.

This year’s conference will offer a series of morning workshops where you can learn how to make your yard more Jersey-Friendly.  Choose the workshop sessions you would like to attend during registration.  After the lunch break, our Keynote Speaker, Kathy Salisbury, will talk about native plants that delight throughout the year.  Kathy is the Director of Temple University’s Ambler Arboretum.

Fall is the perfect time to add native plants to your landscape.  Stop by the native plant sale at the event – get some expert advice from the growers and some new native plants to add to your yard.  Visit exhibitors with plenty of information about landscaping for a healthier environment.

A complete agenda and registration will be available soon.
