If you have noticed an infestation of moths this month, you are not alone! Calls have been coming in about moths in the home, lawn, and anywhere with a light source. If they look like these little bugs, read the KSRE fact sheet about Army Cutworms.
Youth Veggie Garden Project
The Youth Veggie Garden Project is a free program for all youth in Harvey County who have completed kindergarten through 5th grade. Each youth participant receives several free plants and seeds to grow throughout the summer. After growing these plants, participants have the option of entering plants in the Harvey County Fair, August 3-7, for display!
Gardening with kids is a great family bonding experience that can teach life skills, too. After learning to care for their garden throughout the summer, your child will feel great pride in their fair entries.
