EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – The Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County and the Atlantic County Utilities Authority partner to provide free informational garden meetings to the public.  The meetings provide timely, relevant information for home gardeners of all levels of experience.

The next meeting, which will be held 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20, will focus on festive holiday cactus houseplants. You may know them as Christmas cactus plants, but there are also Easter cactus and Thanksgiving cactus plants.
