Learn To Add Native Plants To Your Garden

By on May 1, 2018

Sustainable Verona, the municipal team to improve the environment in Verona, is helping to bring a program on native plants to our area on Saturday, May 12 at 1 p.m.

At it, University of Delaware professor Dr. Doug Tallamy will discuss native plants and how to incorporate them into your garden. Among Tallamy’s research goals is understanding 
the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants.

There is no charge to attend the program and participants will be given Red Oak (Quercus rubra) seedling donated by Pinelands Nursery in Columbus, N.J. and 
Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) plugs donated by the Caldwell Environmental Commission through a Sustainable Jersey grant.

The program will be held in Caldwell University’s Alumni Theater. There is ample parking on campus.
