Course Description

The story of connection to the natural world in suburban New Jersey Presented by filmmaker, Sarah Galloway

Wild in the Garden State is the story of connecting to the natural world in suburban New Jersey. Dave and Sarah are city transplants who want a beautiful, ecological garden, but don’t have any gardening experience. The documentary short (under 30 minutes) captures the transformation of a 130-foot-lawn into a life-sustaining place of wonder. This timely film will guide and inspire both experienced and new gardeners who want to spend less time maintaining a pristine – and unhealthy – lawn and more time enjoying the natural world, right in their own backyard.

Filmmaker Sarah Galloway honed her craft producing exhibit media for the American Museum of Natural History. Husband Dave is

an architect who is inspired to garden for nature while creating a beautiful, park-like space. “WILD in the Garden State”, her second independent film has screened at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, the Environmental Film Festival at Yale, the Princeton Environmental Film Festival and the Garden State Film Festival.
