Hello Master Gardeners: Rutgers Vegetable Gardening Series

July 18, 2017

 Volunteer Opportunities at our “Vegetable Gardening Series” Lectures

This summer we are having our first evening Vegetable Community Gardening Series Lecture at our Sharing Garden. We had our first program on June 22 with Tom Mulligan lecturing on Starting a Vegetable / Community Garden.
The programs will start at 6 pm and people will park in the main Trailside Parking Lot. We’ll gather outside the TMA classroom. The classroom is in the building where the bathrooms are, closest to the demo garden and amphitheater.  We’ll take the group into the Sharing Garden via the back demo garden gate from 6:00 -6:45, than we will be using the TMA classroom for the Power Point Lecture.  We should be done by 8:00 to get everyone out of the parking lot by dark.

I could also use clerical help in the office to put together program handouts.
