National Night Out
Country Fair & Harvest Festival!
 • 2014
eal food rules here at The Frelinghuysen Arbore-tum and with a talented staff of horticulturalists and trained chefs, we not only show you how to grow it, but also how to cook and preserve it, too! Back by popular demand, the monthly gardening series,
Grow, Cook, Eat
 is now in its second year. In these classes, you will focus on one particular vegetable each month and learn how to plant, grow, and manage its  pests and diseases. New and unusual vegetable varieties are introduced, and you are supplied with seeds so you can successfully grow your own. The exciting aspect of this program is that it takes you one step further by showing you how to cook what you have harvested. Each session is complete with food tasting, and you go home with your own new recipes to try. Beets are showcased

 you learn how to save tomato seeds for next year’s planting, how to preserve the fruit, and what to do with all those green tomatoes. The cooking demonstrations,
What’s Cooking
, revolve around what produce is being harvested in the Garden State. Chef and Master Gardener Cynthia Triolo makes four recipes, sometimes more when she can’t help
herself, from start to nish, demonstrating various cook 
-ing and baking techniques, as well as answering questions along the way. At the end of each demonstration, we eat! On

 a fall harvest menu is on the table. Herbs are the star of the
Pres-herb-vation Workshop
 September 13
 with Lesley Parness, Superintendent of Horticultural Education. Learn the many different ways to  preserve your harvest by making an herbal vinegar, an herb
avored salt and sugar, an infused honey, an extract, and a
compound butter, all of which you take home. Pack a lunch or purchase it from Matilda’s Café, while you take a break to enjoy the fabulous herb garden before resuming the ‘pres-herb-vation’ activities.

he Mid-Autumn Moon Festival began centuries ago in China as a way to give thanks for a good harvest. Join the celebration of this pan-Asian holiday and experience authentic entertainment and refreshments on
Sunday, September 7
 at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morris Township. Celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, the Moon Festival is timed to coincide with a full moon. Its roots date back centuries, and while it is thought to have begun in conjunction with the harvest, over time other myths grew around it. Learn about the brave Moon God-dess, Chang-O, and the clever Jade Rabbit who lives on the moon. The celebration begins with an international and award-winning  play,
Tiger Tales
 presented by the Chinese Theatre Works Company. Drawing on China’s two-thousand-year history of shadow puppetry,
Tiger Tales
 features an artful blend of Eastern and Western philoso- phies, and ancient and contemporary theatre techniques. This fascinat-ing show engages audiences of all ages and has been performed across America, South Korea, Taiwan, and China. With narration in English and accompanied by traditional Chinese music, the play incorporates popular Chinese folktales and literature. Set in a modern day jungle, the story features a wise old rabbit who recounts her adventures to her granddaughter, including her many encounters with Tiger, the King of the jungle. This colorful, artis-tic, and humorous presentation begins at 1p.m. Following
Tiger Tales
, sample traditional holiday foods, such as moon cakes, osmanthus tea, and the  pomelo. Moon cakes are tasty pastries stuffed with a
variety of llings and shaped like the moon, which is at
the center of this celebration. Likewise, the pomelo, a giant member of the grapefruit family, also symbolizes the moon. The fall-blooming Osmanthus, a shrub which grows at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, is enjoyed in tea form during this holiday. Games, crafts, and family tours in both Mandarin and English complete the afternoon. A Chinese dice game requires sharp math skills as do the tangram  puzzles. Use bamboo, native to China, to fashion a gar-den mobile. Its gentle sound remind you of this special afternoon for many moons to come. Last year this event sold out, so we encourage you to register early for this very special program made possible through the gener-ous funding of UPS, Diversity Relations Team, and the support of Kam Man, Inc.
