NDSU Soil Health Workshop at CDP Lodge [Video]

On March 10th, 2014, we hosted a summit of soil health experts from the region. The Managing for Soil Health Workshop was organized by the Soil Health and Land Management department of the NDSU Extension Service. The gathering included researches and producers alike who are interested in advancing knowledge and technology related to soil health and conservation in agriculture.

The folks from NDSU produced a video from the event which they have permitted us to share here on our blog. If you happen to be interested in planning to have a similar conference style event at Coteau des Prairies Lodge, this video shows a great variety of meeting and conference spaces used around the lodge for the event. It also features a special appearance by our very own Joe Breker!

We also have some photos from the event. Click on an image below to open the photo gallery.

Asian Indian Cuisine Photos

Here are some mouth watering photos from our evening of ethnic Indian cuisine featuring the talented Urvashi Mulasi.

As you can see from the photos, Urvashi (of Urvashi’s Kitchen, St. Paul, MN) uses only fresh and authentic ingredients in her dishes. Our guests were truly in for a delicious treat. In fact, pretty much everybody cleaned their plates with each course (which made cleanup that much easier).

Urvashi also shared a fun and informational presentation at the end of dinner about Indian culture and cuisine.

North Dakota Curious: A New Guide to the State by Sylvia Wendel

North Dakota Curious: A New Guide to the State by Sylvia Wendel

Last year, author Sylvia Wendel set out on an exciting journey traveling from California to explore and document one of America’s last frontiers…North Dakota.

Sylvia spent part of her trip in our corner of the state last summer experiencing area accommodations and gathering information from locals such as Bill Anderson (famous here for his weekly column The Rooster Crows). She spent a couple days at Coteau des Prairies Lodge and even went on a farm tour with Joe Breker.

Her travels brought her all around our great state and her book is packed with fascinating bits of history and culture she gleaned along the way. She also provides numerous thoughtful and thorough reviews for hospitality and dining establishments from the four corners of the state and everywhere in between. This is a great book for anyone who wants to plan a road trip in North Dakota. The book is titled North Dakota Curious: A New Guide to the State. You can purchase the Kindle edition on Amazon for only $2.99. It doesn’t appear to be available in print at this time.

In addition to her mention of our ‘soaring ceilings’ and ‘windows that go on for days’, we love the following quote from Sylvia’s book about the lodge:
