The Monroe County 4-H Team will be sharing a series of brief videos for youth and families, highlighting tips and small garden projects to do at home. Recently, 4-H Educator Jessica showed us how to sow seeds in homemade toilet paper roll pots in a tutorial found on the Cornell Cooperative Extension YouTube channel. 

Additional videos will be premiering on the Monroe County 4-H Youth Development Facebook page over the next few weeks. Topics will include Taking Care of Seedlings, Potting up Seedlings, and Companion Planting. These videos will feature research-based information to get a garden off to a great start. 

To view 4-H 10-Minute Gardening tutorials, please access the CCE-MC YouTube channel. If you wish to see future videos, subscribe to our YouTube channel under the name of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County. You can also follow us on Facebook (@4HMonroeCounty), Instagram (@monroe4H) and Twitter (@ny_4h). 

The Monroe County 4-H Program is offered through Cornell Cooperative Extension to the youth of Monroe County. 4-H is a worldwide youth development program open to all youth aged 5-to-19, who want to have fun, learn new skills, and explore the world. In return, youth who participate in 4-H find a supportive environment and opportunities for hands-on or "experiential" learning about things that interest them.
