New members are always welcome, regardless of their gardening experience.  Volunteering in the garden is a rewarding experience, learning and working alongside several certified Master Gardeners and dedicated members.  Although we are under the auspices of the Historical Society, you are not required to be a Historical Society member, as the Garden club does not collect dues.

If you would like to join the Museum Garden Club or in need of more information please contact Head Gardener, Roberta Shaw at 973-697-9176 or email Roberta.
