The Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County will host a program on Community Gardens Thursday, January 30, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The program will be held at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 930 Spruce Street, Lawrence, adjacent to the Trenton Farmers Market.
What is a community garden? Who can join a community garden? Why would you do so? How and where do you sign up? What plants do best in a community garden setting? Master Gardeners with experience in community gardening answer these questions and provide an overview of community gardening and discuss those available in Trenton and other locations in Mercer County. To pre-register for this program, call (609) 989-6830.
