Gardening seminar to explore micro-irrigation

Autumn reflects in the water on Nov 13 at Historic Walnford in Upper Freehold, which featured a 19th century grist mill demonstration.

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County will hold “An Introduction to Micro-irrigation” gardening seminar at 10 a.m. on March 4 at the EARTH Center in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, 42 Riva Ave., South Brunswick.

Micro-irrigation allows for drip irrigation to be achieved with household water pressure. This form of irrigation has been used by farmers for decades and has been known to save time, reduce weeds, produce healthier plants and work especially well during droughts or dry seasons.

The workshop will demonstrate the specialized attachments used for irrigation lines that are widely available in hardware and garden stores.

To register, call 732-398-5262 by March 1. No walk-ins will be admitted.
