Spring Horticulture Workshops
Square Foot & Container Gardening
Join us April 24th and May 1st for some instructional meetings on how to build your garden and enjoy fresh vegetables from your own home with less space, less work, and more produce than a traditional row garden. NDSU Extension Agents will cover creation and care of a square foot or container garden while nutritionists will discuss the proper care and nutritional value of your vegetables. Class is free but space is limited, so please register here.
Business of Ranching Workshop
This workshop is an opportunity for early career ranchers and others to gain knowledge and business skills to be successful in the cow-calf and ranching business. Registration is required. Cost is $75, with a $50 refund upon completion of the workshop. To register, please print off this brochure and submit to the NDSU Extension office of Ward County with your check. The registration deadline is June 6th. For additional information, contact our office at 701.857.6444
