These IF PLANTS COULD TALK "Quick Tip" Educational videos feature topics in the realm of home horticulture and natural resource management. They are presented by the Middlesex County office of Rutgers Cooperative Extension who would like to thank the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders for the continued support of the Extension office and our new home at the EARTH Center. These videos contain topics that have been featured on the Environmental stewardship TV series called IF PLANTS COULD TALK (which aired on NJN Public Television). Video content created by the Middlesex County Extension service can also be seen on many Cable Access stations throughout Middlesex County.

We would like to invite educators throughout Middlesex County, New Jersey and beyond to use these videos as a learning tool and consider using proper cultural practices within their own environment. Any students, teachers, scout troops or educational groups of any sort who view these videos and would like to offer feedback or request more video content are encouraged to do so by e-mailing david.smela@co.middlesex.nj.us.

Viewers who would like to learn more on these topics are also invited to take part in Middlesex County's Master Gardener Program, hosted by the Extension services Agriculture & Natural Resource Management Department. Currently Middlesex County is the only county in the state to offer both a daytime and evening Master Gardeners Class. Call the office for more details.

Also contributing to the video content was Richard Weidman, Middlesex Co. Agricultural Program Associate, Donna Pemberton, Middlesex County Ag Program Assistant, Nick Polanin, Somerset County Agricultural Agent, Jim Willmott, Camden County Agricultural Agent, and Rod Schmidt, former Superintendent of the Middlesex County Mosquito Commission.
