Community Garden Plots
Your local Extension Service office has a variety of gardening resources in print form and on the NDSU Extension Web site at www.ag.ndsu.edu. Check out the "garden to table" publications that provide information about growing vegetables, preparing them and preserving them. If you decide not to rent a plot, consider container gardening. Tomatoes, peppers, herbs and other vegetables grow really well in pots on a sunny step.
Did You Know?
Gardening counts as moderate physical activity. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on most days of the week. Consider gardening with children. Kids will learn new skills and have fun watching things grow. Children who help grow fruits and vegetables also are more likely to eat them.
