Native Medicinal Garden

Douglass Memorial Garden, aka The Native and Wild Medicinal Plant Garden, offers free outdoor herbal medicine education and is now in its 11th year. This healing space sits atop a small hill overlooking beautiful Upper Greenwood Lake. We are a community of people who love plants and invite you to come lend a hand as you learn.

We call it “Education at the Crossroads.” We have tools to share and Robin Rose gives mini-classes and often shares a delightful herbal infusion with participating volunteers. Join us for part or all of any of our Sunday gardening days on the third Sunday of the month from April–October, and learn how to tend the medicinal plants. Visit our event calendar for more details on our next gardening day. This is a fun and educational experience for all ages, so please bring the kids!

The garden is located at the intersection of Clinton Road and Warwick Turnpike in Hewitt, NJ 07421.


Please reach out to Robin Rose Bennett through her website,  robinrosebennett@gmail.com973-728-5878, to learn more about how to volunteer or otherwise offer your support for this valuable resource in our town.
