Backyard Orchards: Growing Fruit Trees in Small Spaces

Monday, July 23rd @ 7pm

Are you interested in growing different kinds of fruit at home but concerned you don’t have enough space? This talk by Master Gardener John Eaves will give you some ideas on how you can have fruit all season, grown in your own yard.  John will cover how to select, plant, and protect your fruit trees and describe some techniques used to maintain small trees in high density plantings for the home garden.

Go, van Gogh!

Thursday, July 26th @ 7pm

An incredibly prolific painter, Vincent van Gogh produced more than 2,000 paintings in his life. In this “Armchair Art Tour,” Dr. Michael Norris will explore some of these works, with a particular focus on pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This Public Scholars Program, sponsored by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, is presented by Art Historian, Michael Norris, Ph.D. With over 20 years of teaching at the Cloisters Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and other global destinations, Michael “tries to find the story in the artwork.”
