BISMARCK (UTN) – Members of the North Dakota Horticulture Society toured Dragonfly Garden July 26 as one of the organization’s outings during a three-day conference in Bismarck. About 50 visited the site along Burleigh Avenue on the south campus of United Tribes Technical College.
Dragonfly garden is a display and experimental plot developed jointly by UTTC’s Land Grant Programs in cooperation with the NDSU Extension Service. In the garden are over 130 varieties of hardy and semi-hardy roses, 45 varieties of fruit trees and 22 varieties of small fruits, along with over 100 varieties of annual and perennials.
The visit featured an interpretive talk by NDSU Horticulturalist Tom Kalb, who co-coordinated garden planning and development and spent many hours there over the past three years planting and tending the plantings.
Served during the event were lemonade and tea made by the United Tribes Land Grant staff from natural ingredients grown in the college’s gardens.
