Taking advantage of these programs between growing seasons, gives you time to study gardening techniques and acquire the supplies needed to be successful. Why rush to brush up on gardening information during the growing season when you should be applying these skills in the garden.
RU Ready 2 Garden can also be a substitute for the postponed 2020 Rutgers Master Gardener class. For more information on the resumption of the Master Gardener class or to receive an invite to the webcasts e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with “RU Ready” as the subject.
