UMM's Native American Garden to be featured on Prairie Yard and Garden

The Native American Garden at the University of Minnesota, Morris, will be featured on this week's episode of 'Prairie Yard and Garden' on Pioneer Public TV.

This student-grown garde holds traditional vegetables that are harvest and preserved for use during a fall community meal. 

Larry Zilliox, former University of Minnesota Extension educator from Alexandria, Minn., hosts the popular 30-minute program—one of Minnesota’s top resources for gardening information. PY&G airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. on Pioneer Public Television.

Each season, PY&G travels the state to confer with researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and backyard gardeners about their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and other gardening topics. In association with Pioneer Public Television, the series is produced by Roger Boleman, director, and Michael Cihak, assistant director of marketing communication and design, of Instructional and Media Technologies at the University of Minnesota, Morris. Cihak also serves as production coordinator, editor, and videographer.

The longevity and success of the program characterizes a unique alliance between the University of Minnesota, Morris and Pioneer Public Television, KWCM Appleton. Pioneer Public Television, a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate, serves more than 375,000 households across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
