How to Achieve A Resilient Landscape Workshop Recording

On Thursday, June 3 at 7:00 p.m. Master Gardeners from the University of Minnesota Extension program presented short and long term tips on developing a yard that safeguards the environment.  The presentation helped planters assess what they have in their landscape and determine what they’d like to achieve in the garden. It will cover topics such as good soil, the right plants in the right place, dealing with challenges, water quality, maintenance considerations, planting for pollinators, and general garden design principles.  View the recording here.

Wanted: Your Resilient Yard for our Tour!

To make our tour a reality, we need residents to volunteer their gardens for the tour.  Could this be yours?  It can be front, back, boulevard, or all three.  Rain gardens – in any stage, bee gardens, gardens with innovative design with the environment in mind, gardens with native plants, pollinator lawns, beneficial trees and shrubs, native pocket plantings, are all welcome.  Please consider participating – your neighbors will be truly grateful to you for offering your garden for the tour.  Please email us your address and your resilient yard highlights and we’ll get you added to the tour.
