Garden club to host Regina Carlson

February 17, 2014 by  

The Hohokus Garden Club will be having Regina Carlson, an award-winning environmentalist and gardener, at its meeting this month.

Carlson’s topic is entitled “Through the Garden Gates of England” and will focus on the private yet well-known gardens of the UK. The traditional English elements, gardening practices and plants will be emphasized and photographs will be provided by Kenneth Carlson.

Most likely the Garden Club is using the printing services if the local newspapers to announce this special presentation.

Regina Carlson is self-taught when it comes to gardening, learning from the 500 gardens she has visited, most of which are located in England. She has designed and maintains her own garden which is ¼ acre in size and contains a variety of colorful shrubs and flowers and hundreds of different kinds of plants. She has also served as the executive director of the New Jersey Group Against Smoking and Pollution, which is an advocacy organization across the state that played a great role in the New Jersey Smoke free air act.

Meetings of the Garden Club typically take place on the third Monday of each month at the Borough Hall in Hohokus from September through Jun. This month’s meeting will be on February 24th at the Community Church and refreshments will be served. Those who are interested in gardening, from novices to Master Gardeners, are invited to attend and join the Club.
