El Huerto Urbano

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension is very excited to announce an urban gardening series in Spanish, titled “El Huerto Urbano.” This series consists of live webinars in which colleagues from the New Jersey Agricultural Extension Service will offer advice for beginner gardeners with a different gardening topic each week. This is a series geared towards beginner gardeners interested in learning how to grow a vegetable garden in urban spaces. Even though these sessions are designed for adults, in them we will share gardening activities for the whole family, especially for the youth!

Join us on Mondays beginning July 12, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. These virtual sessions are in Spanish, last 1 hour and will be held live via Zoom. All sessions are free. Participants must register to join.
Upcoming Schedule:

  • 7/12/21 Planning a Vegetable Garden in urban spaces 

  • 7/19/21- Growing cool season crops from seeds

  • 7/26/21- Composting: Improving your soil in the urban garden
