NDSU Extension to offer online gardening forums

NDSU Extension

Do you want to grow a beautiful yard and garden?

North Dakota State University Extension will be broadcasting its Spring Fever Garden Forums online from March 20 to April 10. The live forums will be held on Monday evenings, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. CDT and are open to all interested gardeners.

Topics will include how to grow vegetables and fruits, design gardens for butterflies, improve your soil, add small trees to your landscape, grow plants in containers, discover new technology for gardeners and much more.

“This is a great opportunity for gardeners to learn about the latest research from NDSU,” says Tom Kalb, NDSU Extension horticulturist. “They can watch live presentations and ask their questions to the researchers and Extension specialists.”

The forums are hosted at 25 NDSU Extension county offices across the state. Free seeds will be distributed at the sites. Gardeners have the option of participating online at home as well. Approximately 800 gardeners participate every year. The forums are free.
