Fordville c,ut I learns how to shape the. world at National 4-H Conference CHEVY CHASE, Md. -- Four North Dakota youth have helped shape national 4-H policy and learned how to make a difference in their communities. The youth attended the 2011 National 4-H Conference in Chevy Chase, Md., during the first week in April. The National 4-H Conference is the secretary of agriculture's premier youth development opportunity. It allows youth to help form recommendations to guide 4-H youth development programs nationally and in communhies. This event brings together youth, volunteer leaders, and Extension specialists and agents from across the U.S, U.S. territories and Canada. North Dakota's delegates to the conference were: Justin Zahradka, Walsh County; Deann Berntson, LaMoure County; Colby Hennessy, Mountrail County; and Bobbi Jo Kronberg, Dickey County. "My favorite part was meeting all the amazing people from North Dakota and other states," Berntson says. Through citizenship excursions, conference sessions and roundtable discussions, delegates explored specific topic areas, learned how to mobilize social change on issues that directly affect them, and developed ideas of how 4-H programs can support these objectives and develop young people to meet the challenges of the future. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and Secretary of Education Ame Duncan spoke to the youth about the future of agriculture and education, from the challenges to the opportunities. 4-H also became a presence at several federal agencies during the contbrence. The 4-H'ers prepared and delivered presentations on several issues affecting youth, including bullying and environmental conservation, to those agencies. To see three of the recorded webinars created from the roundtable presentations, visit http://4hconl:4- h.org/postconference.aspx. "My favorite part of the 2011 National 4-H Conference was having the privilege of being introduced to a group of admirable students from North Dakota and around the nation, and having the opportunity to work with a team of 15 students to create and give a presentation to the National Forest Service," Zahradka says. Delegates also had the opportunity to meet with aides of U.S. Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D.; U.S. Rep. Rick terg, R-N.D., and U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R- N.D., on Capitol Hill Day to represent North Dakota youth and discuss state 4-H programs. The North Dakota 4-H Foundation provided funding for the delegates to attend the conference. BLOOMS CONTINUED FRO Floral, will be giving a talk at 6:00 p.m. on Trees & Shrubs. The topics covered will be Planting, Selection, Maintenance and Pruning of Trees & Shrubs. We appreciate all that took the time to donate plants last year to make our sale a success and once again we are seeking people willing to donate plants for the Blooms in June Plant Sale. Seedlings will be coming up often in unexpected places over the next few weeks in virtually all gardens. Use a trowel and dig around and under the seedlings in order to save as much of root ball as possible and plant in a container size suitable to the size of the seedling. Mark on the container what you believe the seedling to be. Keep seedlings moist and out of direct sun. Dividing perennials will not only support our sale, but helps rejuvenate your plants, and controls their size in your garden. In general it is best to divide late summer/fall blooming perennials as soon as possible in spring and spring blooming perennials after blooming or in the fall. Try to divide in the morning or evening when plants M PAGE 1 are least prone to moisture or heat stress. Lift the parent plant staying 4 - 6 inches away from the plant and digging deep enough to maintain as much of the root ball as possible. Split the parent plant into smaller plants and remove dead or dying tissue in the process. Several perennials resent division due to taproots etc. Some include baby's breath, false indigo, gas plant, and butterfly weed. Woody plants are not to be divided. If you are unsure if a plant can be divided please call Damon Johnson at 701-269-0874. Plant the divisions either back in your garden or in a container size suitable to the size of the division. We're still in the planning process and will get additional details out as we get closer to the June 8th Blooms in June Plant Sale and Seminar. Contact any of the following committee members if you are willing to donate plants or pots or just want more information: Damon Johnson (701-269- 0874); Ruth Je!inek (701-284-4589); or Joel Hylden (701-331-9710) PAm RIwrt CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC WELCOMES Dn.
