In late spring 2019, SDSU Extension hosted the second annual ENERGIZE! Exploring Innovating Rural Communities Conference in Lemmon, South Dakota. This conference brought an estimated $25,802 to the local Lemmon economy during the two-day event.
Cool, rainy weather in Lemmon, S.D., didn’t dampen community spirit on April 30 and May 1, 2019, when the North-Central community hosted the state’s Energize! Conference with facilitation by SDSU Extension’s Community Vitality Team.
Five South Dakota counties have been given disaster declarations due to dry summer conditions. This declaration gives producers in these counties and those in contiguous counties access to USDA-FSA emergency loans.
This event is an opportunity to obtain timely, research-based gardening information, enjoy self-guided tours and socialize with Master Gardener colleagues from across the state.
