Page 24 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • October 14, 2009 New Jersey Botanical Garden volunteers will work with the garden’s expert staff on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m. to noon, to plant hundreds of daffodils in the New Jersey State Botanical Garden. Children are welcome, so bring the family and help make a colorful display for all garden visitors to enjoy next spring. This is also a great place to get answers to questions about spring bulbs in your own garden. This mass bulb planting will enhance the lovely daffodils that bloom in late April throughout the botanical garden, always an early and welcome sign of spring. These deer-resistant beauties return year after year in vibrant displays of yellow, orange, salmon and white. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves and a trowel, and should wear sturdy shoes. No experience is necessary. Meet on the Great Lawn behind the Carriage House. Rain date: Oct. 31, 10 a.m. to noon. NJBG holds hands-on workshops throughout the growing season, working Volunteers needed to plant daffodils at NJBG with many different plants under expert guidance. Be sure to check next year’s calendar for workshops on lilacs, hostas, perennials, wildflowers, and much more. Some of the bulb plantings from last year’s event.

In 1966, the State of New Jersey purchased the 1,117 acres of Skylands, a former country estate and the state’s first acquisition under the Green Acres preservation program. Then-Governor Thomas Kean designated the central 96 acres surrounding the manor house as the state’s official botanical garden in 1984. Since 1976, NJBG/Skylands Association, an incorporated, member-supported non-profit organization of volunteers, has worked with the state to preserve and protect Skylands and its historical structures. NJBG sponsors programs, concerts and events throughout the year at the botanical garden.
