Metro Blooms Workshops

Unseasonably warm weather, long periods of drought and flooding rains are the new normal for Minnesota’s spring and summer seasons. Metro Blooms Creating Weather Resilient Yards workshops will give you an overview of Minnesota’s changing weather patterns and ways to mitigate the impact in your own yard. We’ll cover options for establishing mowable, native alternatives to “grass” turf, raingarden basics and other resilient yard practices. Receive one-on-one assistance creating a plan for your yard from Metro Blooms landscape designers, Blue Thumb Planting for Clean Water Partners, Hennepin County Master Gardeners, and Master Water Stewards, as well as information about cost share programs and Blue Thumb resources for help along the way.
