Our Lake, Our Legacy: protecting Minnesota’s life at the lake
Megan Weber and Dan Larkin, University of Minnesota Extension, are enlisting passionate citizens to protect Minnesota’s waters.

Sowing the Seeds of Success: a new set of learning tools for Minnesota’s farmers
Jake Overgaard and his University of Minnesota Extension educator colleagues are using a new generation of educational tools to meet farmers where they’re at. That might include a podcast on improving disease management (to listen to while they’re driving a combine), or a YouTube video on business planning. Because when it comes to farming, an extra set of hands is always helpful.
