[ARCHIVED] Back By Popular Demand...Growing Vegetables in Small Spaces II

Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources will hold the workshop Growing Vegetables in Small Spaces 2 on Thursday, June 28, 2018. The first workshop on this same topic was held in April and sold out early, therefore, a second workshop covering the same material has been scheduled. The workshop, part of the “Garden & Grow” series, will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Courthouse - South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, NJ.

The presenter will be Belinda Chester, Rutgers Master Gardener Coordinator for Atlantic County. Participants will learn how to garden in containers and raised beds, methods for disease and pest control, and how to start your own plants from seeds. Also, there will be a hands-on seed planting activity and everyone will take home the seeds they plant.

Jenny S. Carleo, County Agent, Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County, said, “The objective of this workshop is to demonstrate that you don’t need acres to grow fresh produce at home. Some popular vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers can be grown in a limited space, in containers, raised beds, and even on balconies or patios.”

The goal of the Garden & Grow 2018 workshop series is to teach locals how to improve or expand their home gardens in new ways. This is a beginner class, therefore, no experience is needed. The cost for this workshop is $25 and includes dinner at 5:30 p.m., followed by the presentation and seed planting activity at 6 p.m.

Registration is limited to 30, so please register early at
