As an initiative of the Garden Club of NJ(GCNJ) and the National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC) two Westfield Garden clubs are collaborating with Williams Nursery, 524 Springfield Avenue in Westfield to create a pollinator center, a place for the public to learn about and purchase much needed plants for our endangered pollinator population.
The three partners, Williams Nursery, The Rake and Hoe Garden Club of Westfield and The Garden Club of Westfield welcome the public to the grand opening on May 20, Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the nursery at 524 Springfield Avenue in Westfield. Signage for the Center was designed and produced by the Butterfly and BeeGAP committee of GCNJ.
David Wilson from Garden Splendor and Emily Kennedy from Prides Corner Farm will speak on "New Varieties of Plants that Attract Pollinators" and "American Beauties - Native Plants for Pollinators and Wildlife," respectively.
The three organizations will also present plant donations to the Westfield Neighborhood Council, an organization which provides a service and food to their community by establishing a community garden. The event will be held rain or shine.
