ACUA's Garden Talk series resumes March 29

Participants listen to a master gardener during a previous Garden Talk. These free discussions are held monthly at the ACUA's Community Garden.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Experienced and beginning gardeners alike are welcomed to participate in the next monthly Garden Talk of the season from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority Environmental Park, 6700 Delilah Road.

The discussions are held in partnership with the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County. These informal talks offer a chance to learn from knowledgeable master gardeners and for participants to ask questions about growing their own food.

During the May 24 talk, Master Gardener Sue Scarlett will share information on transplanting warm-weather crops and making compost. Scarlett’s presentation draws not only from the research available through the Rutgers Cooperative Extension but from many years of growing vegetables organically in her home garden, according to an ACUA press release.

When the weather is good, the talks are held in the park’s Community Garden, which offers spaces for those who cannot garden at home. The meetings move indoors to a meeting room in the building next to the garden when needed.

This event is free and open to the public. Go to or call 609-272-6950 for more information.
