Metro Blooms offers resilient yard presentations
Metro Blooms, a local non-profit organization that works to strengthen communities by promoting environmentally sound landscaping, offers two types of resilient yard presentations through June at various Twin Cities locations:
Resilient Yard Workshops (2.5 hours) will provide a framework to understand the importance of resilience and how it can be fostered through a variety of practices including raingardens.
Turf Alternative Workshops (1.5 hours) overviews the benefits and options of, and steps for establishing water- and pollinator-friendly perennial ground covers.
All workshops attendees receive information about installation cost share programs and Blue Thumb resources to help get a project in the ground. The cost is $15 per household. Info: metroblooms.org or 651-699-2426.
