Hoboken Garden Club
Some info about upcoming lectures (why is it that I always thought a “lecture” was a bad thing?)…
Plus information about the little-known Hoboken Garden Club. Check it out, it’s kind of cool! I’m sure many people will want to join the club, because horticulture is very cool, (if you know what I mean!)
Hoboken Garden Club 2008 Spring Lectures

Mr. Pollock, gardener, geologist and gardener, will show us how to create a habitat which could be in a container or in the garden that is bird-friendly. He will also show us which trees, shrubs, vines and perennials support the various life cycles of butterflies and will explain the techniques used to attract these garden friends.
