Cape May Court House – Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources will hold the workshop, “Extending the Vegetable Gardening Season,” on Thursday, September 12, 2019. The workshop, part of the Garden & Grow series, will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County, 355 Courthouse - South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210.
The presenter will be Jen Sawyer, Rutgers Master Gardener Coordinator for Cape May County. Topics will include planting cold hardy crops for overwintering, using row covers, and getting a jump on spring planting and harvesting. There will be a hands-on portion where participants will learn what to plant in the fall for a spring harvest and will also get a plant to take home for their fall garden.
The goal of the Garden & Grow 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 $20 and includes dinner at 5:30 p.m., followed by the program at 6 p.m. Registration is limited to 30, so please register early at http://RU-CMC-ANR.eventbrite.com.
