Hunger Free Gardens 2014

ND Hunger Free Garden logoAs your gardens are beginning to produce a bounty of vegetables, we invite you to participate in the Hunger Free ND Garden Program this summer. This program encourages gardeners across the state to share their excess produce with those who are less fortunate and may not have the opportunity to grow their own food. To help you get started donating, we have a scale and log available in our office Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. so you can conveniently weigh your produce and then simply drop it off at the site of your choice.

Vole

Voles are active year-round, day and night.

In late summer and fall, voles store seeds, tubers, bulbs, and rhizomes. They will eat bark from trees and shrubs, primarily in fall and winter, and they will eat crops, if the populations are high. Voles rarely invade houses, in the event that they do, they can be controlled by setting snap traps.
