United Tribes NewsDragonfly Garden abuzz with action
3 August 2011
PLANTING TIME: Three sets of helping hands were at work with the pink colored rose bushes June 28 in the United Tribes Dragonfly Garden. From left, Jayzen Lee and Jonah Windy Boy, both age 8, rolled the root-ball out of its container and Miranda Medicine Crow, 9, gathered in soil for the planting. All are students at Theodore Jamerson Elementary School and part of the United Tribes Junior Master Gardener Program. They learned their technique from Tom Kalb, NDSU Extension Horticulturalist and co-coordinator of the display and demonstration garden on the college’s new, south campus. With 140 types, Dragonfly Garden contains the largest number of different rose varieties in one location in North Dakota, according to Tom.
United Tribes may also be on its way toward receiving free tree stock for a fruit orchard in the garden. As UTN went to press, the United Tribes entry was headed for victory in the Edy’s Fruit Bar online voting contest: “Communities Take Root.” United Tribes is thankful for the helping hands of all its friends – those at computer screens across the country, and the ones in the soil of Dragonfly Garden.
