Educational Garden

To deliver horticulture programs and factual information to the general public–that’s the mission of the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Camden County.

Located behind the Camden County Environmental Center on Park Boulevard, the garden is open to the public.  Like any garden, change is a constant.  We’re finishing the second year of a Five Year Plan…so you’ll continue to see updates in the future.  On our Wish List are perennial vegetable and fruit gardens, a shade structure, screening of the Parks Department equipment yard, and permanent plant identification.  We’ll add more trees and shrubs to compliment the landscape.  We’re grateful for the support of New Jersey American Water, Camden NJ,  and Camden County.

We strive to make the best choices to promote use of native species, consider environmental benefits and potential harms, and use best management practices to encourage biodiversity and sustainable ecosystems.  Our goal is to inspire responsible gardening and land use management through education.
