Community Outreach



At the Center many events occur throughout the year including:

Horticulture Field Day- Held at the same time as the Center's Dryland Field Day, we showcase our research gardens, vineyards, and orchard by inviting NDSU professionals to speak on or demonstrate what they are doing in research and how it impacts all areas of the state.

Tree Workshops- Demonstrations by NDSU professionals and local experts on selecting trees that will thrive in northwestern ND, how to plant and prune landscape trees, and information on scouting for pests.

Gardening Saturday Workshops- Information from NDSU professionals and local experts including, but not limited to: the basics of landscaping, small fruit production, high value crops, vegetables and flowers for North Dakota, caring for orchids, home remedies, ornamental grasses, and pest management.
