First season is colorful for experimental  garden
27 September 2010


LEARNING LAB: Flower varieties suitable to this area were grown and evaluated during the inaugural season of an experimental garden on the United Tribes south campus, dubbed Dragonfly Garden. UTTC Land Grant programs collaborated with Tom Kalb, NDSU Extension Horticulturist,  to develop Dragonfly Garden and gardening activities for UTTC students and families. The plot is located adjacent to Burleigh Avenue near the college’s south entrance. Next summer flowers will bloom again along with 300 vegetable varieties, 200 rose bushes and 30 fruit trees. Future plans include youth and family garden plots, an outdoor learning center, raised planting beds and other unique gardening ideas. On the planning committee are Julie and Donald Cain, Ruth Buffalo-Zarazua, Tamera Marshall, Lora Grey Bear, Jennifer Young Bear, Bernard Strikes Enemy, Dennis Neumann and Rebekah Olson. Those interested in joining please contact Pat Aune x 1399, paune@uttc.edu.
