Much fun was had at the 4H day camp on Wednesday. Lucas Holman, Judy Fann, Gina Stayshich, Stephanie Powers, Monette Hancock and Vicki Rohr helped about 80 students learn about pollinators, herbs, the value of mulch and that bugs are necessary for food production.

We had a very successful work day at the Demonstration Vegetable Garden on Friday, May 14. Within a couple of hours we put up trellises for the cucumbers, planted herbs, three different types of okra, tomatoes, pole beans, green peppers, eggplants, squash and popcorn for the Three Sisters Garden.
Thank you very much to the folks (and little toad) who came out to help with the weeding, planting and mulching. It is greatly appreciated!
Rosemary Marshall and Joni Wohnrade

Poor Jeff shoveled wheel barrows of soil. He deserved a break.
