It’s almost the end of seed gathering season so take advantage of these dry, crisp autumn days to gather what’s left in your garden. Harvesting your seeds helps make preparing your garden for winter a more pleasurable task.

When a community joins forces, great things happen!
After hearing the about Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey's vision for the program Connections thru Music... an intergenerational program bringing music to those in our community with Alzheimer's and dementia, we at Calgo decided to support this important effort. The benefit Music in the Garden, held on Sunday, October 15, 2017, was our way to contribute.
We are overjoyed to let you know that over $12,000 was raised for Connection thru Music. Fran Pannella, the Alzheimer's Respite Care Program Manager, tells us that this amount “made a huge impact in making the dream of expanding Connection Thru Music [to Monmouth County] a reality…[it] will enable us to make the investment in staff time that is critical to the success of building and managing this program.”
Big changes can come from small, every day practices. At Calgo Gardens, we believe in making differences by offering an assortment of fair trade products.
Calgo Gardens' Bi-Annual Art in the Garden was a day filled with fun and festivities for everyone.
Over 50 curated, local artists and artisans set up their booths which were filled with hand-made and home-grown wares for the many patrons who came to stroll the grounds of Calgo.
Calgo was ready for the event with a fresh supply of gourds, mums and pumpkins for all your outdoor fall decorating. No doubt about it, there was something everywhere you looked to make you smile all day.
The temperature has started to drop, the air is a little dryer and summer vacations are over. It’s time to show your yard a little love. It’s time to divide and conquer some of the perennials in your flower beds!
Those of you who are regular visitors to Calgo, our nursery, and THE BARN know that we are about bringing peace, harmony, and the beauty of art and nature to home, garden, and you! For those of you who are just discovering us…you are in for a happy and inspiring experience!
