Teaching Gardens

The growth of residential communities within Burlington County has led to an increased need for home horticulture and home gardening information

To foster the educational goals and outreach mission of both Burlington County and Rutgers Cooperative Extension, the “Demonstration Plots at the Burlington County Community Agriculture Center” were established.

The demonstration plots serve as an example of the plant production techniques and practices recommended by the cooperative extension.

The goal of the demonstration plots is to promote awareness of the concepts of environmental stewardship, sustainability, and integrated pest management.

The demonstration plots are a work in progress. When completed the plots will showcase any or all of the following: vegetables, herbs, perennials, ornamental plants, native plants, turf plantings and a display of agricultural crops produced in Burlington County.
