Jul 13 4-H Forestry Judging Practice Dallas, GA Forestry Judging is progressive and each practice builds upon the last. At summer practices we review and learn our trees, practice our measurement technique and create our study materials. Once we finish summer practices, we're really just practicing things we've already learned. If you have friends who are interested in joining the team, please invite them to the first practice, so they don't miss any of the important stuff! Some reminders about practice: • Bring a three ring binder for your manual. • Bring any flashcards you have from last year's meetings. • Wear tennis shoes. • Bring your lunch. • Bring water and sunscreen! (It's going to be HOT!) • Be on time!

A working professional has to make decisions about where to work, how to balance professional and private time and when to invest in more education. That’s why the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Peanut works to connect graduate students with mentors and to foster useful conversations that help a scholar navigate the working world.

  • Vegetable Garden Calendar (C 943) The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall. Every year does not conform to the "average," so you should use your own judgment about advancing or delaying the time for each job, depending on weather conditions.
  • Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.
  • Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water (C 1016) Homeowners sometimes experience unpleasant odors in their household water. In many cases, the exact cause of the odor is difficult to determine by water testing; however, this publication provides a few general recommendations for treating some common causes of household water odors.
