$15 workshops: creating resilient yards in the face of changing weather patterns

Unseasonably warm weather, long droughts and flooding rains are the new normal for spring and summer in Minnesota. Learn how your yard can adapt to and even help mitigate threats posed by these extreme weather events. Space is limited.

Participants receive:

  • An overview of Minnesota’s changing weather patterns and ways to minimize their impact in your yard by using alternative turf, rain gardens and other resilient-yard practices.
  • One-on-one design assistance from Metro Blooms and Blue Thumb landscape designers and U of M Extension Master Gardeners from Hennepin County.
