Spring 2012 issue of Source magazine is online

| Leave a comment

The Spring 2012 issue of Extension's Source magazine is available on the Extension website.

This issue of Source highlights the many ways Extension delivers on the land-grant mission as we approach the 150-year anniversary of the Morrill Act (see related article, “150th Anniversary of Land Grant University”). Read how Extension Master Gardeners give back to their communities through community gardens; discover how Extension’s 4-H youth explore the sciences and improve water quality through aquatic robotics program; and learn how some surprising research shows that properly maintained lawns can be good for the environment.

This issue also shows how Extension ensures safe pork and healthy pigs, brings robotic milking to Minnesota dairies, boosts Internet know-how, engages Ojibwe youth in science, puts locally grown food in school lunchrooms, raises quality in youth development programs, and raises awareness of food insecurity in Minnesota.
