SOUTH BRUNSWICK—Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County’s EARTH Center will host their Garden Field Day Open House on Saturday, Aug. 29, from 1 to 5 p.m. at 42 Riva Ave. in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, South Brunswick.
The Extension Agriculture Department as well as the County Master Gardeners will be on hand, offering sound advice on horticulture and environmental stewardship. Tours will be given of the various demonstration gardens including a huge vegetable display garden, a 13-bed hardscaped herb garden, and the newly constructed butterfly house. This is a great event for the county’s Master Gardeners to show off the hard worked they have done to educate the public and each other throughout the growing season.
Extension personnel will also be conducting a Jersey Fresh Produce Taste Test. By offering free samples of locally grown produce in exchange for a short survey of consumer buying habits, the County Ag Agent can determine how local farmers should adapt to meet the needs of the local population. There will also be live music, food and kids can meet MC Blue the recycling robot.
Even if you can’t visit the EARTH Center this season, you can still get great vegetable gardening tips from the extension staff, just visit www.co.middlesex.nj.us/extensionservices and click on Educational Video.
