Home horticulture topics are the focus of our Rutgers Master Gardener program, a division of the Agriculture and Natural Resources department. Trained volunteers of the Rutgers Master Gardener program work with the program coordinator to deliver gardening information and solutions to county residents. Volunteers of this program also help conduct community outreach regarding issues with homeowner gardens, lawns, and landscapes. Scroll down for an assembly of responses to frequently asked questions.
Lastly, be sure to check out the project sites our Rutgers Master Gardeners maintain throughout the county. These include the teaching garden plots at the Burlington County Agricultural Center in Moorestown, the butterfly garden at Smith’s Woods in Eastampton, and the donation garden at Medford Leas in Medford.
