To kick-off the Hopewell Public Library’s summer program, join local author Jared Rosenbaum for a dynamic reading of his new children’s book, The Puddle Garden, at the Hopewell Train Station on Wednesday July 1 at 7:00pm.
In this children’s story full of native plants and wildlife, learn how Bear Cub invited friends to his new house, by creating a Puddle Garden. Bear Cub plants cardinal flower, swamp milkweed, elderberry, and more. His garden quickly fills with wild friends from hummingbirds to frogs, and his new home is no longer lonely.
The reading is followed by a presentation for children and parents on creating a native plant rain garden at home, with photos and stories about wildflowers and wildlife.
Wild Ridge Plants will also have a selection of native wildflowers for sale in front of the station before the program begins. For more information check out Wild Ridge on Facebook and at their website wildridgeplants.com.
