projects & Programs
The NBHF is dedicated to sharing the legacy of Dr. Borlaug through a variety of programs. We also preserve and care for the Birthplace and Boyhood Farms and the one room school he attended as a boy. The properties are actively utilized to inform and educate visitors about the life and work of Dr. Borlaug.
Help the NBHF continue its Educational Outreach Programs, the Restoration of Buildings and our Long Term Goal of Establishing an Endowment to fund these programs and build a Visitors Center.
