The Green Garden Fair will include activities for children including pony rides, face painting and crafts. There will be information on gardening with kids, guided nature walks and a visit from the Philadelphia Zoo on Wheels. In addition, the fair’s market will feature a wide variety of flowers, herbs, vegetables and more for purchase. Information will be provided by experts in the field of organic and sustainable gardening giving out tips and techniques for a healthy garden.

“Bring your sick plant to a clinic hosted by the Camden County Master Gardeners Program to learn how to nurse it back to health from an expert,” Gentek said. “You can also bring a plant division to participate in a plant exchange with other gardeners.”

The fair is held in cooperation with Rutgers Master Gardeners of Camden County.

“We hope to see you for this day of fun and learning for every member of your family,” Gentek said. “Together, we can make a greener and more sustainable future for our community.”
