Resilient Yard Workshop - FULL
Thursday, April 13, 2023
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL. It's the perfect time to start planning a project, and this workshop will give you the tools you need to create a beautiful habitat for pollinators.
2023 Blue Thumb Resilient Yards Workshops are open!
Beautify your landscape while planting for clean water and pollinator habitat. Resilient Yards workshops give participants the skills to create their own raingardens, native plantings, pollinator habitat, and more. Your yard can be the change.
New this year, all registrants who sign up for a free online learning series or live workshop will be entered to receive a $350 Lawns to Legumes grant, supported by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources. In addition, the Environmental Resources Commission is accepting Landscaping for Water Quality applications. Apply online for a $500 grant by May 8th to fund your project.
Our workshops include new Resilient Shorelines, Resilient Yards, Pollinator Plantings, and Pollinator Lawns/Turf Alternatives. The workshops share information about earth-friendly actions home gardeners can take to protect clean water, create pollinator habitat, and mitigate the impact of extreme heat and flooding rains.
