Public invited to tour Dilworth EarthKind plot

MOORHEAD – The University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension Service will sponsor an EarthKind Rose Trial Plot Tour from 10 a.m. to noon July 1.

The tour will begin at the EarthKind site at Centennial Dog Park, 2210 15th Ave. N., and proceed to Oak Tree Park in Dilworth.

The mission of EarthKind Environmental Landscape Management System is to provide residents with cutting-edge, research-based information regarding environmental stewardship for the ornamental landscape.

Goals of the program are to reduce landscape water, fertilizer and pesticide use and to reduce yard waste entering landfills through composting and use of materials such as organic mulches.
