SUMMIT, NJ - Reeves-Reed Arboretum is offering a fall version of 'Let’s Get Growing!, the wonderful world of square-foot gardening' -- with special sessions for adults as well as children -- running through November. Adults can choose from Square Foot Gardening Basics to Planning for Spring. Children can lean to plant a Rainbow Garden, plan for a Garden Scavenger Hunt, or create unique Garden Crafts and Treats.

Interested parties can sign up for one class, or join the Arboretum each month to "cultivate wonder" through the innovative square foot gardening method.

Square-foot gardening does not require tools or fertilizer and, once a garden is built, there are no weeds. Everything in a square-foot garden, whether vegetable, herb or flower, will be edible.

Reeves-Reed Arboretum is located at 165 Hobart Avenue.
