We welcome you to have a lively and fun evening of our NOFA-NJ community! The Autumn Celebration will feature live music, a contra dance, and an art exhibit showcasing the wonderful world of pollinators. Sue Dupre will be our contra dance caller, known for her energy, enthusiasm, and good humor, Sue loves to work with crowds of new dancers. Her repertoire of dances are easy to learn and fun for all ages! No partner or experience necessary! The Stony Brook Bluegrass Band with Bill Flemer, David Olsen and others will be the accompaniment to Sue’s calling, working together to inspire the dancers.
Native plants and a pollinator support exhibit will be on display for gardeners and farmers alike. Nurseries including Wild Ridge Plants, Toadshade Wildflower Farm, and Earth First Native Nursery will be selling their native plants on site. Artists Victorino Pineda and Elayne Leighton will showcase the intricate beauty of our native pollinators in their exquisite compositions, also available for purchase.
