The 37th Annual One-Day Educational Program Will Be Held on March 23, 2013

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – January 17, 2013 – The Rutgers NJAES Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE) is holding the 37th Annual Home Gardeners School on March 23, 2013 in New Brunswick, NJ. Featuring thirty-five workshops covering a variety of topics related to gardening and landscaping, this is a wonderful opportunity for both novice and experienced home gardeners to receive expert instruction, learn new horticulture skills, and connect with others who share their interests.

This full day event will feature speakers from the OCPE’s commercial horticulture and landscape design programs, along with Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) and School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) faculty and staff. These highly energetic and knowledgeable speakers will share their gardening wisdom and give attendees practical information that can be used to enhance existing gardening practices or implement new techniques. Students will leave with the know-how to prepare their gardens for the spring and beyond.

The thirty-five gardening workshops cover a wide range of topics, including composting, irrigation, lawn care, tree care, beekeeping, and pruning techniques. Some workshops include hands-on activities, such as building a water garden, creating a terrarium or learning the art of fresh flower arranging.

This year’s Home Gardeners School also includes sixteen brand new workshops covering topics ranging from gardening using social media to bird-friendly landscapes to shade-loving plants. Attendees can create their own schedules by selecting the workshops that are most relevant to their gardening interests for a truly exciting day of learning!

The Saturday program will be held in Hickman Hall on the Rutgers University Cook/Douglass Campus. Coffee/tea and registration begin at 8:00AM and workshops will run from 9:00AM-4:00PM, with a one-hour lunch break at noon. All participants will have an opportunity to attend the keynote lunch presentation, “Where have All the Stinkbugs Gone?” featuring Dr. George Hamilton, Rutgers University Extension Specialist in Pest Management and stinkbug expert.

Registration for Home Gardeners School is available by calling 732-932-9271 or by visiting http://www.cpe.rutgers.edu/HGS. Participants may purchase an optional boxed lunch or bring their own. Space is limited and admission to workshops will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so participants are encouraged to register early.
