WHY
New Jersey’s incomparable
horticultural institutions are places where people can experience nature and
appreciate our rich historical and always growing works of landscape art – and
they all need our help. The event’s second annual beneficiary is New Jersey’s
Keep it Green Campaign. Their mission is to secure a long-term stable source of
funding for the acquisition of open space, farmland and historic sites as well
as the capital improvement, operation, maintenance, and stewardship of state
and local natural areas, parks and historic sites in New Jersey. This work is
guided by the belief that every New Jersey resident deserves well-maintained,
accessible neighborhood parks, wildlife areas and historic sites. Please check
out their website: njkeepitgreen.org.
WHO
Friends of Earthly Delights – an
all-volunteer group of local designers, architects, horticulturists, garden
writers, and gardeners have formed an alliance with the Land Conservancy of New
Jersey to help benefit New Jersey public parks and gardens.

2012 Lectures
Saturday, June 2
11-12pm
Dick Lighty – Caring for the Garden: Is it a Delight … or a
Chore?

On a virtual tour of two very different gardens we’ve made, and
through a typical year of garden tasks, Dick will show the amount of time and
effort it takes to maintain garden areas of varying levels of intensity – and
reward, leaving it to the listener to decide what they might prefer in terms
of work and enjoyment. The conclusions are supported by handouts showing the
actual data on time required per unit area for each level of gardening.
Another handout describes the techniques used to maintain each area throughout
the gardening season.
1-2pm
Anne Raver – Milestones in the Organic Garden Anne Raver, a
frequent contributor to the New York Times and Landscape Architecture
Magazine, will offer an anecdotal timeline for the organic movement in this
country. Anne has been an organic gardener since the early 1970s and has
interviewed hundreds of gardeners and farmers, as well as CEO’s of chemical
companies, in over 30 years of writing about the environment.
2:30-3:30pm
Rick Darke – Emerging Ecologies: Gardening Sync’d to the
Nature of Our Time

Ecological change is the signature of our age, and it
is accompanied by unprecedented opportunities to embrace the new ‘Nature’ in
our gardens and community landscapes. Rick Darke will use a wide array of
public and private places to point out the creative possibilities of a time
in which the only constant is the accelerating pace of change.
Sunday, June 3
9:30-10:30
Pete Johnson – Pete’s Greens, Vermont’s Four Season Organic
Vegetable Farm

Learn how Pete’s Greens grows and sells a wide array of
organic produce year-round in Northern Vermont’s challenging zone 3 climate.
This workshop will cover a basic overview of Pete’s 3 acres of greenhouse and
65 acres of outdoor production, season extension, root cellaring, freezing
and other preserving of farm produce, field operations, and how Pete’s Greens
fits into the agricultural renaissance that is rapidly expanding in the
Hardwick, VT region. In addition Pete will discuss farm profitability, how to
achieve it and why economic success is an important component to rebuilding
our local food system.
11-12:30
Eric T Fleisher & Paul Wagner – Creating a Healthier
Landscape Through Organic Practice

This symposium will focus on teaching
the methods to manage successful organic landscapes; including soil
management, pest and disease control, irrigation, pruning, plant selection,
and specialized compost design and practice. Eric T Fleisher and Paul Wagner
are two of the most influential advocates for organic landscape practices.
This approach focuses on encouraging the natural nutrient cycling systems
thereby eliminating the use of inorganic fertilizers, insecticides,
fungicides, and herbicides. This eliminates the toxins that have
traditionally been used in landscape maintenance, and results in a healthier
more vibrant landscape.
