About Home Gardeners School
Whether you are a Master Gardener or don’t yet know the digging end of a trowel, Rutgers Home Gardeners School has something for you! Each Home Gardeners School event is made up of multiple workshop sessions covering a wide array of horticulture topics and experience levels. This format allows you to select the workshops that are most relevant to your gardening interests and create your own customized schedule for a fun day of learning. The workshops are designed to inspire and prepare you for the growing season ahead.
For 2022, the workshop topics included soil building and composting, vegetable garden planning and design, butterfly gardening, fruit for the small garden, community gardening, beneficial native plants, mushroom cultivation, pruning, and much more. Rounding out the day was a keynote address from Author, Editor, Radio/TV Host Mike McGrath, Garden Jeopardy! with Steve Kristoph, and interactive discussion sessions with other participants.
