North Dakota State University is offering a series of forums to help you care for your yard and garden. A team of experts will present information on timely topics in gardening and landscaping. The sessions are free.

Forums will be held on Mondays March 19 & 26, April 2 & 9, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm CT. Gardeners can attend the forums at the McKenzie County Extension Office.  The sessions will be shared over the IVN system in the extension office.

We encourage gardeners to attend the forums at the extension office. Local educators will be there to share their educational materials and expertise. Bonus activities include free samples of seeds, spuds and gladiolus.

You can join us online at home. Go to the website listed below and register for online participation.  We will share with you a link to the forums.  Registrants watch live presentations on their computer. Questions can be typed in a chat box during the forums. A moderator in Fargo will ask your questions to the speaker.  Handouts will be posed on the the website by the Saturday proceeding each session. All presentations will be archived for future viewing.
