WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- The Douglass Memorial Garden in West Milford needs volunteers to help with medicinal plant gardening starting on Sunday, Aug. 14.

August is the month when some of the most endangered ephemeral plants blossom, such as bloodroot and hepatica.

Volunteers will spend time in the garden learning about the plants while they work in the soil. Volunteers can come and work for one hour or stay for all four.

The gardening sessions will be held every second Sunday through November from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Contact Robin Rose Bennett at robin@robinrosebennett.com or garden manager Russ at fdutch@aol.com for more information.
