Local Interest

Youth ages 5-18 are invited to join us to learn everything you need to know about growing flowers. From starting seeds indoors, to planting outdoors and taking care of the flowers until harvest. Youth will start some seeds at the workshop and go home with more seeds to plant on their own. Youth can then bring the flowers to the fair.

The 2024-2025 Nemaha County 4-H Fair Book is now available online.  Go to our 4-H Fair Book page to view the NEW Fairbook.

We are entering the season to plant spring vegetable gardens. As the saying goes, “Plant your potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day” or others say to go with Good Friday. Either way, these cool season vegetables can be planted now. But be cautious with your plants, they could be injured by late freezing temperatures or frost events.
Spring is here, officially, but that doesn’t mean we should get overly excited and go clean up our landscape beds just yet. However, Asparagus will soon be emerging from previous plantings and new plantings can be started soon.
