“As a County with a strong tradition of supporting our agriculture industry, we are thrilled that the five award recipients will continue to honor that tradition and hone their skills to join this necessary field,” said Commissioner Lillian G.

Congratulations to the recipients and we wish you success in your future endeavors.”

The Monmouth County Master Gardeners hold several fundraising events during the year that are used to fund the scholarship program.

Applications for the next Monmouth County Master Gardener scholarship program will be available on Jan. 1, 2023, from the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Monmouth County. The deadline for submission of a complete application is April 15, 2023.
