The ranch is located off Highway 14 east.

The workshops will be presented Saturday at Landon’s greenhouse on College Meadow Drive in Sheridan, from 10-2. This will be the last of the fall workshops. The morning session starts at 10 and focuses on medicinal herbs and the afternoon session starts at 1 and will focus on the proper way to maintain beautiful, lush houseplants. The workshops are offered to the public, free of charge.

The bike race comes by the way of Biketoberfest, which runs from 10-2 Saturday at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds in Sheridan. The event is hosted by the Sheridan Community Land Trust and features trail runs along with a 15-mile mountain bike race.

The tours are through the Sheridan Cemetery, held on Saturday, and feature programs on local history. The tours cost $5 per person, and participants must be at least 13 years old due to adult content.

According to promoters of the show, his concerts are a mix of traditional folk, blues, gospel and country music, performed on an assortment of vintage guitars, lapsteels and banjos.
