May 27 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Working in the field.

I had the pleasure of spending the day at the Spokane Country Club recently while they hosted about 50 high school and college students. They were there to learn about horticulture, soil and water testing, fertilizers, golf course management and, of course, to have a little fun with golfing activities.

My thanks go to reader Jack Worden who told me about this program a few months ago. It's always nice to write about positive programs and events going on in our community.

The above photo is of one of the local high school students who helped plant bedding plants in the flower beds near the clubhouse. They all did a great job.
