Volunteer Gardener Program
The Gloucester County Office of Land Preservation will be facilitating a “Gloucester County Certified Gardener Program”. This group will receive a minimum of 50 hours of training in a variety of horticultural topics taught by leaders in the industry. In exchange for the training, the individual is asked to volunteer 60 hours back to the program. Volunteer activities range from staffing displays at community days, assisting county residents with their gardening, lawn and insect problems, teaching gardening classes to youth and adults, and assisting the county, municipalities and local organizations with community beautification projects. If you have an interest in gardening and volunteering, this program is for you! Both beginners and experienced gardeners will gain valuable knowledge and experience through this exciting program. The classes will be held on Wednesday mornings from 9 am until noon, starting in January 2017 and continuing through the end of May. For more information, or to receive an application for the program, call The Office of Land Preservation’s Certified Gardeners at 856-307-6456.
