BRING THE FAMILY TO GREENWOOD GARDENS HISTORY & HARVEST CELEBRATION IN SHORT HILLS

I recently discovered Greenwood Gardens, a hidden gem just off Old Short Hills Road in Short Hills. There is a sign at the driveway entrance. You drive up a winding road, through a gate, to a beautiful house with magnificent gardens. What a treasure! Here’s an event they’re holding that might interest my readers:
