Growing in the Garden

Gardeners can rent plots for $15 per growing season and are granted access to compost and a greenhouse. Our garden beds are filled for the 2021 growing season. 

Educational Programs in the Garden

Educational Garden Talks hosted by the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County are offered monthly. Master Gardener Program Coordinator Belinda Chester will host the talks that span a wide variety of gardening topics. Garden Talks are held in person at the ACUA's Community Garden.
