Educational Gardens

To deliver horticultural 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 our third year; we’ve a long way to go, and it’s so exciting!  Our plans for 2020 include more permanent structures, paths, and more educational programs for the public.  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 Parks Department.

We strive to make the optimum 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.
