Our 39th Annual Home Gardeners School will be held on March 21, 2015!

You will not find more information on more subjects anywhere else in the state.

The Home Gardeners School offers you expert instruction in the most innovative gardening and landscaping subjects available. Our Spring 2015 Home Gardeners School features 35 different sessions -- so you may participate in many diverse class offerings throughout the day.

Speakers from our commercial horticulture and landscape design programs will be participating, along with Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) and School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) faculty and staff, to provide you with the opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

These experts will teach you about landscape design, common problems and solutions, annuals, perennials, vegetables, bees, pruning, best management practices, and a whole host of other practical topics designed to prepare you and your garden for the spring and beyond.

Watch this video overview to see what you'll learn at Rutgers Home Gardeners School!
