The Master Gardeners of Union County is a program of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension, supported in part by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders. The all-volunteer group cultivates an expansive demonstration garden in the county’s Watchung Reservation. They are headquartered in the county building in Westfield.
Among the Master Gardeners’ many service projects are horticultural therapy, a free gardening helpline, flowers for local cancer patients, community gardens, scholarships and more. Each year the demonstration garden yields hundreds of pounds of fresh produce for donation to local food pantries.
The free Master Gardener Helpline is available from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 1-908-654-9582 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
