CRP signup open; deadline May 15th

Farmers and ranchers may apply to enroll grasslands in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands signup beginning March 16. The signup runs through May 15.

Gardening is good for you

Gardening is good for you

All things seem to revolve around the coronavirus outbreak of 2020. Things feel uncertain, surreal and downright scary. Working from home with children or caring for family members can make it a challenge to balance professional demands and family obligations with physical activity and healthy diets.

During this time, it is best to self-isolate and take a great deal of self-care. We also need both mental and physical stimulation to relieve stress and relax.

Gyms are shut down, travel is limited and we must maintain social distance. But you can get the American Heart Association-recommended 30 to 60 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic and strengthening activities by gardening. Countless studies have linked regular physical activity with improved joints, increased bone and muscle mass, improved metabolism and immunity to disease as well as enhancing mental health and well-being.
