WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- Folks are welcome to come help maintain and learn about the contents of the Douglass Memorial Garden, with its native and wild medicinal plants, on Sunday, June 12.

These gardening days are the second Sunday of each month, through November. "We spend our time in the garden learning about the plants as you work the soil and contribute to keeping the garden and its inhabitants healthy," organizers note.

The session will be from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Folks are welcome to stay for a single hour, or all four. No gardening experience is necessary, and the groups have tools to share.

The garden is located on the triangle at the junction of Warwick Turnpike and Clinton Road. It's co-sponsored by WiseWoman Healing Ways and Sustainable West Milford and is tended by volunteers.

Contact Robin Rose Bennett at robin@robinrosebennett.com or garden manager Russ at fdutch@aol.com with questions. Donations to Sustainable West Milford are also welcome. You can do so online here.
