Goffle Brook Farms was honored to be a participant in the Hawthorne N.J. 8th Annual Green Fair. The purpose of the fair is to educate the community about sustainability—social, economic and environmental aspects—as well as buying locally, resource conservation, and health and wellness. Goffle Brook Farms shared a booth with Lincoln Landscaping of Franklin Lakes, promoting native plants in the landscape.
Native vegetation evolved to live with the local climate, soil types, and animals. This long process brings us several gardening advantages. Native plants provide multiple benefits to people and wildlife, while contributing greatly to healthy soil and water in urban and rural areas. Native plants attract a variety of birds, butterflies, and other wildlife by providing diverse habitats and food sources.
