RUTGERS GARDENS: The Rutgers Master Gardeners want to help you sharpen your food growing skills by offering a new gardening workshop called, “Growing Garlic in Your Garden.”
This free workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9 at the EARTH Center located in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, 42 Riva Ave., South Brunswick.
The workshop will begin with an indoor presentation followed by an outdoor, hands-on planting session.
“The 2016 gardening workshops series at the EARTH Center is a great opportunity for those who cannot commit to the weekday sessions of the Master Gardeners classes,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “I hope many people will register for this class; not just gardening enthusiasts, but anyone who wants to learn more about cooking or gardening.”
“The Master Gardeners have created another informative and useful program,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the Business Development and Education Committee. “Garlic takes up little space, can be planted in the fall and has many uses in cooking.”
Though this is a free workshop, pre-registration is required. To register, call 732-398-5262 by Oct. 5. No “walk-ins” are permitted. The size of these classes is limited, so register early to ensure a space. For more information, contact the EARTH Center at 732-398-5262.
Rutgers Cooperative Extension educational programs are offered to all without regard to race, religion, color, age, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
