Rice County news

Ag leader

For interested youth who are in 6th grade and above and have an interest in agriculture or would like to learn more are invited to become part of the Dakota/Rice Agriculture Education Leaders (formerly Agriculture Education Representatives) group this year.


County fair is going to be here before we know it. Families are busy preparing in different ways - registering for the classes to exhibit in, working with their projects, thinking about how they can volunteer, etc. There are a lot of pieces to think about and it can be overwhelming, especially if this is a newer part of your life. Some of our seasoned youth and adult volunteers would like to help make this experience a smoother one.


This is a great way to learn more about outdoor gardening, get some of your gardening questions answered and help play a role in creating pollinator friendly environments.
