The Rutgers Urban Gardening Program collaborates with urban families, individuals, and schools residing in Essex County and surrounding areas to create and grow green spaces within their communities. Gardens now cover acres of urban land (abandoned lots, municipal and county lands) growing vegetables, herbs and ornamental flowers.
