Minocqua Farmers Market looking for new vendors
MINOCQUA - As winter in the Northwoods winds down, the season for fresh produce starts up. The Minocqua Farmer's Market will begin in May. But first, they need new vendors. 

The market is looking for vendors who sell fresh produce, eggs, cheeses, yogurts, plants, jams and much more. But it's also looking for people to do more than just sell their goods. 

"We also are looking for non-profit groups once a week. We like to have someone new come in and either teach a class, share some information, educate us about agriculture, teach a craft or skill and we want to move forward with that and have something different every week," said Correspondence secretary Jerry Odehnal.

Odehnal also says the market wants to provide entertainment. Music groups and food trucks are welcome to apply. 
 
"We want to get food vendors so our vendors have something to eat while they're there in the past we had as many as two food trucks in 2015."

For more information and to apply to be a vendor, click the link below.

WOODRUFF - S'mores, sleeping bags, and firewood are usually at the top of people's camping checklist.

A recent law change made it legal to move firewood but the DNR still hopes people don't.

Since 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources banned bringing your own firewood to a state property, unless you live 10 miles or closer to the property.

"[The ban is] to attempt to prevent the spread of invasive diseases and insects that can have a detrimental impact on our forests," said DNR State Forest Team Leader Tom Shockley.

He says currently, the entire state of Wisconsin in now quarantined for the invasive species emerald ash bore and gypsy moth, meaning it's no longer illegal to move wood across county lines.

RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it.  That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.

Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday.  The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.

A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table.  The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
