EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Experienced and beginning gardeners alike are welcome to participate in the next Garden Talk of the season, Square Foot Gardening, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) in Egg Harbor Township.

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 as 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. 

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 food.

When the weather is good, these talks are held in the 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 more information, visit acua.com or call (609) 272-6950.
