The Rutgers University Master Gardener Program, a volunteer organization of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, annually recognizes the outstanding work accomplished by members of each county organization by presenting Awards for Excellence… The conference took place on Oct. 3 at the Cook Student Center of Rutgers University. For Somerset County, the Individual Award for Excellence was awarded to Jody Friedman for seven years of work developing the outreach programming at Camp Jotoni, a division of ARC. The enabling gardens Jody and her team of Somerset Master Gardeners designed and planted, allow campers with special needs to experience gardening and nature through educational, sensory and hands on activities… The Rutgers Master Gardeners are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of their fellow Master Gardeners. Those interested in more information about the Rutgers Master Gardener program in Somerset County can contact the NJAES Rutgers Cooperative Extension Office of Somerset County at 908-526-6293.
