RARITAN TWP., NJ - Everyone is welcome to celebrate Nature Day at the Dvoor Farm Farmers’ Market on Sunday.

The market, which is managed by Hunterdon Land Trust, is at 111 Mine St. here.

Nature Day begins with an early bird walk led by Juanita Hummel at 8:30 a.m. - a half hour before the market opens. The walk will last about an hour, and will explore resident breeders on the property. Red-tailed hawks and yellow-bellied sapsuckers are among the species of birds spotted on the farm.

Hummel will stop at several observation sites and discuss which species of birds are using the habitats and why the preservation of specific habitats is important for birds and other wildlife. This is also a great time of year to check out other charismatic winged creatures like butterflies and odonates, such as dragonflies.

Hummel is an avid birder and nature lover. She currently serves on the board of the Washington Crossing Audubon Society, and also volunteers with the NJ Audubon Society, the Wildlife Conservation Corps and other conservation organizations. Retired from pharmaceutical research, she has happily left the lab behind to spend more time outdoors exploring the diverse and fascinating natural landscapes of the world.

Master Gardeners will also visit the market and share some handy composting tips.

A yoga session will be held in the wagon house at 8 a.m. with instructor Lauren Theis. Participants should bring a yoga mat. Cost for the session is $12.

As part of HLT’s efforts to steward the Dvoor Farm property, Action Together Hunterdon County volunteers will participate in an invasive species cleanup with Land Steward Stefani Spence during market hours.

Want to lend a hand? Join us at the Dvoor Farm House at 9 a.m. Registration isn't required, but if you have questions or want to let HLT know you’ll be participating, call Stefani at 908-237-4582. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring bottled water. Please bring loppers, bow saws, or handheld power saws if you have them.

No registration is required for the bird walk, yoga or the stewardship project.

The Farmers’ Market, open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., features more than 20 local farmers and vendors offering organic produce, grass-fed beef, pork, chicken, yak, honey, artisan breads, freshly ground spices and loose teas, fresh-cut flowers, cheese, milk, eggs, locally roasted coffee, native plants and more. Visitors can enjoy a flatbread pizza made with ingredients provided by local farmers while listening to live music.

June 22, 2018

To the editor,

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

Reiner Doesn't Speak for Township Committee

To the editor:

In light of the recent letter to the editor from Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner regarding his personal opinion on arming school officials, we felt the need to share our views on his statement.

Mr. Reiner took this position as an individual citizen and not in his capacity as a member of the Township Committee. We wholeheartedly disagree with the notions of arming ...

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...
