Cape May Court House – Back by Popular Demand! Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Agriculture and Natural Resources Program is offering a second workshop this year on Home Hydroponics on Thursday, October 26, 2017. The Home Hydroponics Workshop will take place, rain or shine, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Courthouse - South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, New Jersey.
