Experienced and beginning gardeners alike are welcomed to
participate in the next “Garden Talk” of the season on Tuesday, Tuesday, June
11 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
During the June 11 Garden Talk, Master Gardener Coordinator
Belinda Chester will share information on square foot gardening; a method of
maximizing planting space to successfully grow vegetables in small spaces. This
talk will be more than a discussion, the method will be demonstrated in a
garden bed at the ACUA’s Community Garden, giving participants real experience
in how to get the most out of available garden space.
Garden Talks are hosted at the Atlantic County Utilities
Authority (ACUA) in Egg Harbor Township. These talks are held in partnership
with the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County. These informal talks at
the ACUA’s Community Garden offer a chance to learn from knowledgeable Master
Gardeners, and for participants to ask questions about growing their own healthy
When the weather is good, these talks are held in ACUA’s
Community Garden, which offers spaces for those who cannot garden at home. “Garden
Talks” move indoors to a meeting room in the building next to the garden when
needed. The garden is located at the ACUA’s Environmental Park, 6700 Delilah
Road, in Egg Harbor Township. The meeting room is in the Geo Administrative
Building at the same location. This event is free and open to the public. For
