Van Vleck House & Gardens Presents:
Practical Tips for the Home Gardener

Is your garden in need of a little help? Or, does your landscape lack a garden and cry out for one? If either is your case, or you just want to expand your gardening skills, come to Van Vleck House and Gardens for a series of practical workshops, given by one of the area's top landscape designer-landscaper collaborators. The four-party series will be led by noted landscape designer Lisa Mierop, owner/operator of Mierop Design, a residential landscape design/build firm that services high-end residential projects in and around Montclair, and landscaper Frank J. Contey, owner/operator of Terra Graphics Landscape Services, who collaborates with Mierop on projects.

The Gardens are open to the public from dawn to dusk,
365 days a year, and are always free-of-charge.

Come experience this most precious gift!
