Sargent County’s NDSU Extension Office Has Moved, and Spring is Coming!

Sargent County’s NDSU Extension Office Has Moved, and Spring is Coming!NDSU Extension in Sargent County has moved!  Our new office is located inside the Wild Rice SCD building at 8991 Highway 32 in Forman.  The building also houses the USDA FSA and NRCS offices. Our telephone number remains the same as always:  701-724-3355.  We look forward to continuing to serve you from our new location!

“Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows, lies the seed that with the sun's love, in the spring, becomes the rose.”  These are lyrics from a song titled, “The Rose,” sung by Bette Middler.

With that tune and thought in mind, I am pleased to announce the upcoming 2019 series of NDSU Extension Field to Fork webinars.  Webinars air live at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoons, starting February 6.  If that time doesn’t work for you, don’t despair!  The webinars are recorded and archived!  You can watch them at your convenience in the comfort of your own home!

To participate in any of the free webinars, register in advance at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/fieldtofork/webinars.
