TEWKSBURY, NJ – A native pollinator garden has been planted at Pascale Farm Park - Tewksbury Arboretum, next to the Tewksbury Elementary School. The diverse geographic environments include two ponds, meadows and woodlands, and the garden serves as an outdoor environmental classroom for students and residents. 

The Woman's Club of Tewksbury Township, under the guidance of Dawn Pogoseau, Club Conservation Department. Chair, began the three-year project last year to establish the garden.

Working with the NJ Strike Team, the Native Plant Society of Hunterdon and Forget Me Not Garden Design's proprietor, Sandy Phelps, a park plan was created.

Haydon Hull, former Tewksbury Superintendent of Public Works, created a "reading wall" where one can sit to read and contemplate and a brick path through a meadow. Back to Nature and community residents donated some plants; others were purchased from Wild Ridge Nursery and the Archewilde Native Nursery. 

Girl Scouts of Lebanon Township built stepping stone paths, bluebird houses and a bat house. They planted plant plugs with the third grade Tewksbury Girl Scouts. Plans continue for cataloging the wild flowers, creating smaller trails and planting more plants.

WCTT is a service club providing community support where needed. It is open to women 18 years or older who live in Tewksbury or the surrounding areas. More information may be found at or by calling 908-509-1855.

The spokesman flat-out lied to you when he said all 10,000 customers in Hunterdon would have power restored by Wednesday at 10:30 p.m.
