Region 5 is still rollin’ on

Rising Star Update!

The last few weeks have been crazy but filled with many many fun days. Here are some highlights since our last time chatting…

Visiting Omaha with Region 1:

We explored the Hope Gardens, and saw the amazing work that the Master Gardeners and others put into the garden. The extensive plots and pollinator garden included every plant and flower that you could imagine.

We had the honor of tagging along with Woodbury’s Horticulture expert, Katelyn Brinkerhoff, and speak about Siouxlands Bike N’ Bite this past week. This great event, taking place on July 14th, is a great way to explore the hidden flavors of Siouxland while biking. Check out the interview below!
