Rain gardens and beyond: $15 workshops

Whether you are an experienced gardener or have never tried gardening before, learn how to help keep our lakes, rivers and streams clean by making simple choices about your yard. Sign up for a $15 workshop that will tell you what you need to know to start your own raingarden and make your green garden even greener.

The workshop combines a do-it-yourself approach with expert help and offers the latest in healthy yard care practices, including proper use of fertilizers, disposal and reuse of yard waste, keeping sidewalks ice-free and managing runoff onsite. This workshop is designed to move participants quickly from an overview of healthy yard care practices to a completed raingarden design for their property with one-on-one assistance from Metro Blooms landscape designers and Hennepin County master gardeners. Space is limited, and some locations fill up fast. Workshop dates run from mid-April to mid-June.

The City of Minneapolis sponsors Metro Blooms workshops as part of its eco-focused goal of pristine lakes and streams. More than 6,000 metro residents have attended Metro Blooms rain garden workshops since 2005 and installed more than 2,000 rain gardens.
